Trowbridge Library have teamed up with us to join in the Magna Carta celebrations in Trowbridge. The library has a small display of what life was like around 1215. This is based on the “Magna Carta- Game of Barons” exhibition in our temporary exhibition gallery.

The exhibition is on display in the museum until 25 July, and ties in with other local celebrations around the Magna Carta. There is a conference at Trowbridge Civic Centre entitled King John and Magna Carta England : the reality behind the myth on Saturday 25 April. For children of all ages, the Horrible Histories team are coming to the Civic Centre on 18 and 19 July.

Pop along to the library to pick up more details, and don’t miss the exhibition here at the museum.
