Join one of our Museum Access Assistants as they present you with some fascinating objects associated with providing or controlling light. From a miner’s lamp to a First World War trench light, get hands one and find out more about how these artefacts were used and who might have used them.

Hands on History sessions are free and there is no need to book. Just drop in between 11am to 4pm in the Museum’s Picture Gallery. 

“The Hands on History events at the Museum & Art Gallery are a great opportunity for visitors of all ages to have the unique opportunity to examine the collections at close quarters. They are also inspirational events, encouraging participants to share memories and stories about life in the borough.”
