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.
