Mu­seum roles

Loughborough Echo - - VILLAGE NEWS -

OVER the sum­mer, mem­bers

of the Lough­bor­ough Archaeological and His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety (LAHS), and other vol­un­teers, have been staffing the Old Rec­tory Mu­seum.

The an­nu­ally chang­ing ex­hi­bi­tion, this year cre­ated by Martyn Ben­nett, fea­tures the Civil War, while up­stairs is an in­ter­est­ing col­lec­tion of Lough­bor­ough-re­lated artefacts.

The mu­seum is open Satur­days, from 11am - 3pm, April to Oc­to­ber, and en­try is free, al­though do­na­tions are grate­fully ac­cepted.

On Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 21, there will be a free spe­cial event, fea­tur­ing 17th cen­tury com­edy, and a se­lec­tion of old fun and games.

Do pop along be­fore the mu­seum shuts for the win­ter, fol­low­ing the last open Satur­day on Oc­to­ber 28.

Please Note: we will be closed on Satur­day Oc­to­ber 14.

This year the LAHS are mov­ing to a new venue and all talks will now be held in the com­mu­nity rooms of Knight­thorpe Methodist Church, where there is a large car park avail­able, ac­cessed via Deane Street.

Meet­ings run from 7.30pm -9.30pm, with the talk usu­ally be­ing held 7.30pm - 8.30pm with a chance to talk about all-things her­itage whilst par­tak­ing of re­fresh­ments after the talk.

The LAHS wel­comes both mem­bers and vis­i­tors to its meet­ings!

These are free for mem­bers, and a small charge of £3 per meet­ing for vis­i­tors. Mem­ber­ship of the so­ci­ety costs £15 per an­num.
