Taking the Museum to the People

Market Lavington Museum loves visitors through the door of the museum, but we also take the museum out to the people.

You can see us tomorrow at Clyffe Hall at the Market Lavington Fete. We’ll have a fun quiz for you to buy (only a pound) with a CD of old Market Lavington photos to win. You’ll have a fortnight to complete the quiz and all answers can be found on this web site. Completed sheets should be taken to market Lavington Post Office.

We’ll also be at the Easterton Country Fair on August Bank Holiday Monday – 29th August. Once again, as well as photos and artefacts on display, we’ll have a quiz for locals to enjoy.

Our main event of the year will be an all new ‘Museum Miscellany’ on the evening of Saturday 17th September at the Market Lavington Community Hall. Last year’s event was sold out and was very well received by the large audience. This year’s event will have a similar style but the topics covered will be different and will include The legend of the Dead Drummer, The Saunders family of Market Lavington and a Victorian Magic Lantern slide show. The full program is still being worked out but you can expect to see plenty of photos of our parish in times past and also get a taste of the past  with our ‘museum food’.
