Not In A Pub Quiz at Leykers

August 9, 2017 | What's On | admin | No comment

Get your brains into gear for the next Trowbridge Museum “Not In A Pub Quiz” on Sunday 8th October – 7.30pm – 9.30pm at Leykers Coffee House in White Hart Yard. B6, who won the first quiz, have a narrow lead at the top of the league with several teams in hot pursuit.  They won a magnificent £60 plus some VIP invites to the Civic Open Mic night – the more players the bigger the prize pot.

The third quizzes will be on the 12th November and and the final one on the 10th December when the league winners will be announced. It costs £2.50 per person on the night or you can book a team for £12 per quiz, or the remaining three nights for the bargain price of £33. Doors open at 7pm and the bar will be open – phew!

Onwards & Upwards – Creating a New Museum at Home Mill Trowbridge

July 22, 2017 | What's On | admin | No comment

Situated in its last working woollen mill in Trowbridge which closed in 1982, Trowbridge Museum tells the rich and varied story of the town, its people and the development and manufacture of its famous and high quality West of England woollen cloth.
Building upon 25 years of success, the museum has embarked on a development project to create a unique heritage attracation in the centre of Trowbridge and indeed the West of England.
The total cost of the development is £2,595,600.

In addition to a development grant of £100,000, the Heritage Lottery Fund has ring-fenced another £975,000 towards the expansion on the condition that we raise the remainder.
Trowbridge Town Council is providing matched funding of £1,053,850 towards the capital project and we have already received pledges and in-kind support for £289,800

We therefore have an outstanding cash shortfall of £176,950 and we are seeking support from others who share our vision.

Happy New Year!
2016 was a busy year for the museum, and hopefully 2017 will be even busier. We have exciting new events, activities and exhibitions coming, including some children workshops coming in February half term and Easter. The new exhibition ‘Banned’ is opening on 4th February 2017. It’s a memorable year for the museum and we hope you will come along and join in with the excitement.
The museum saw some staff changes at the end of 2016. Two new temporary staff members have joined, Rachael Holtom is working in Collections and Aisha Baker is working in Education.
Onwards and upwards is progressing well and our final application to expand to the floor above will be submitted in the spring.
