Community Cases

What will be in the case for 2024?

Throughout 2024

We are looking to get the community involved in the exhibitions and displays in 2024.

Are you part of a community group or local school? Do you want to showcase your groups work, awards or anniversaries? Has your Scouting or Guiding Unit done some amazing badge work?

Then contact the Museum and see how you can be involved in the Museum’s programme for 2024!
