Hands on History - In Commemoration

Published on Tuesday, 14th March 2017

Saturday 18th March Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery 11am – 4pm

Nuneaton's Golden Jubilee

Do you remember the 1966 World Cup, the London Olympics or Nuneaton Borough playing Middlesborough in the FA Cup? Our ‘In Commemoration’ session will look at objects from the museum collections, which have been specifically created to commemorate events, people and places of both local and national significance. 

Visitors can explore objects which help to record important events, from Nuneaton’s Charter Day of 1907 to the opening of the Scout Group Headquarters in 1977. National events are not forgotten including V.E. Day and Royal events to whet your appetite! 

“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.”

Cllr Ian Lloyd, Portfolio Holder for Arts & Leisure
