Dear Museum Supporter,

Due to the ongoing situation with coronavirus/COVID-19 we have decided to cancel our activities and events programme for March, April and May. Activities and events planned for June onwards and are still due to take place but this may change over the coming weeks. This includes all schools workshops, guided walks, holiday activities and the Not In A Pub Quiz. The Shires Shopping Centre have not cancelled the activities we were due to run for them at present but this may well change in the near future – please see the Shires Shopping Centre website for up-to-date information.

We will try our best to to keep you updated via the website and our social media platforms.

Kind regards,

Trowbridge Museum
