Ex­tended open­ing hours for museum

Hinckley Times - - LETTERS -

HINCK­LEY and District Museum has ex­tended its open­ing hours for the sec­ond week­end in a row.

Fresh af­ter open­ing over the Her­itage Open days for an ex­tra day, this week the museum will be open on Thurs­day and Fri­day, 10am to 4pm.

The move is part of the com­mit­ment to the col­lab­o­ra­tion with Hinck­ley and Bos­worth CAMRA cel­e­brat­ing Hinck­ley’s connections with three fa­mous brew­ers - Wil­liam Bass, Wil­liam Wor­thing­ton and Wil­liam But­ler. Peo­ple who at­tend CAMRA’s beer fes­ti­val will have a free voucher in the fes­ti­val pro­gramme giv­ing ac­cess to the museum. For other mem­bers of the pub­lic the nor­mal ad­mis­sion prices will still ap­ply - £1 for adults and 50p for chil­dren.

Museum Chair­man Ann Crab­tree said: “We have worked with CAMRA on a num­ber of ini­tia­tives this year to cel­e­brate Bass, But­ler and Wor­thing­ton. This now is the cul­mi­na­tion of all that work and we wish CAMRA great suc­cess with the fes­ti­val. We are pro­vid­ing ex­tra open­ing hours to en­hance the ex­pe­ri­ence for fes­ti­val go­ers.

Mrs Crab­tree added: “Whether you are going to the fes­ti­val or not, here is a ideal op­por­tu­nity to come and see seven new ex­hibits at the museum this year. There’s a range of ex­hibits from the Ro­mans to the Sec­ond World War. We have an ex­cel­lent tea room pro­vid­ing a lovely at­mos­phere and a cot­tage gar­den, an oa­sis of peace in the cen­tre of Hinck­ley. We have a gift shop with suit­able gifts in­clud­ing Three Brew­ers ma­te­rial.”
