On Thurs­day, March 8, we launched our lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion and con­fer­ence pro­gramme – Vote 100 which ex­plores the grant­ing of the vote to some women over the age of 30 in 1918.

The Cynon Val­ley was the back­drop for a vi­brant lo­cal suf­frag­ist cam­paign. In this ex­hi­bi­tion we aim to cel­e­brate lo­cal links to this very im­por­tant de­vel­op­ment in the so­cial and po­lit­i­cal life of the val­ley.

The art gallery and mez­za­nine gallery show the work of lo­cal artists and groups. Dis­plays change ev­ery six weeks so there is al­ways some­thing new to see. The main gallery is cur­rently home to an ex­hi­bi­tion of paint­ing and sculp­ture from a group of over 40 artists from across south, mid and west Wales.

We hold a weekly lot­tery. £1 per en­try chose four num­bers from 24, min­i­mum prize fund £100. Tick­ets on sale at the mu­seum shop. En­tries for one week, one month and three months can be pur­chased. All pro­ceeds are used to sup­port the work of the mu­seum.

The mu­seum has two spa­ces that are avail­able for hire at com­pet­i­tive prices.

We can ac­com­mo­date events from small meet­ings to con­fer­ences of up to 70 peo­ple, and our in house cafe can pro­vide cater­ing for your event or party.

We run an ex­ten­sive vol­un­teer pro­gramme and we are ac­tiv­ity look­ing for peo­ple who would like to reg­u­larly give a few hours a week to the mu­seum. We are also look­ing for a small num­ber of spe­cial­ists who would con­sider join­ing our team of trus­tees.

If you are in­ter­ested in ei­ther of these op­por­tu­ni­ties please call in, or phone, or con­tact us by email to ar­range a meet­ing with the team.

Check back with this column each week to see the win­ning lot­tery num­bers, gallery news, event pro­gramme and de­tails of spe­cial of­fers.

It is a fan­tas­tic scheme that makes do­na­tions go even fur­ther at no ex­tra cost.
