In response to Covid-19 and the government’s advice, all Trowbridge Town Council staff have been requested to work remotely from home. Unfortunately this means that we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel all upcoming learning & outreach sessions, workshops and events until the end of August 2020. The Trowbridge Heritage Festival 2020 has also been postponed, and will now take place in October half term 2021. If you have any further enquiries please do not hesitate to get in touch with the Museum Manager Hannah (

We wish you a safe summer and look forward to resuming our fantastic programme of events and workshops in the autumn. 

Our fantastic Learning & Outreach team are still on hand to help anyone learning history from home! Send David ( and Nikki ( any questions or let them know if you need some resources which might help make your home learning a little easier and fun! All history topics and periods welcome – we enjoy a challenge!
