Museum Friends Forthcoming Talks and Events

The programme of events for 2018 to 2019 is below and all are welcome. The first session is 7.00 pm on Thursday 6th September in the Parish Centre which is alongside the Church of St Helen. Please get the first Thursday in each month 4th October and 1st November in your diary.

Teams are welcome to join a quiz night on Saturday 13th October. This will be an interesting evening with a good quiz, general knowledge and not too difficult. Tickets at only £12 are available from the Museum so please buy your ticket soon even if you have not found another five people. A fish and chip supper is included in the price so this is a good value night out.

There is still room for another team or some individuals on existing teams but the numbers are needed for supper so please buy your ticket in advance preferably by Thursday 11th October.
