Heritage Open Days is the country’s largest heritage festival with over 4,600 events, around 40,000 volunteers and some three million visitors taking part last year. Celebrating local history, architecture and culture, the four-day event offers everyone the chance to explore hidden places and experience something new – all of which is completely free of charge.
PLEASE SUPPORT US: Trowbridge Museum will be joining the Town Council team to raise money for this worthy cause at this year’s Bath Midnight walk!
We are very excited about our new exhibition: West of England Festival of Textiles (WEFT) which is now open and runs until 7 November 2015.
WEFT is a biennial event at Trowbridge Museum. The festival aims to highlight the history of textile production in the West and to celebrate regional contemporary textile artists, groups and students through exhibiting their work. Join us to celebrate this year’s theme of Weaving!
You can read more about the WEFT exhibitions, workshops, demonstrations and events on www.weft2015.com. You can also follow our blog to learn more about weaving. Why not come along and try our Weaving Corner? It’s a relaxing spot to while away the time whilst you have a go at weaving yourself!
