Bailiffgate Celebrates

2018 is going to be a great year at Bailiffgate Museum. Following on from the fantastic Illustrating Harry Potter experience the museum has lined up an exciting programme of exhibitions and events to suit all ages and tastes.

Felton Art Group kick off in February, with a twenty first birthdaycelebration A Sense of Place. Led by professional artist, Jo Hume, the group is characterised by the diverseskills of its members.
Mid March will be a truly big occasion when our amazing Batteries Not Includedexhibition explodes on the scene. A celebration of childhood, and the toys, games and past times which we all treasured. There really will be something for everyone with toys and games of every decade represented since world war one. As with Illustrating Harry Potter a large part of the gallery will be given over to interactive fun and games. Each month will see e new focus. We start in March with the Teddy Bears Picnic and Build It- a hands on journey through Lego, Meccano and the rest. A chance for the older generation to prove their toys really were better than these newelectronic ones. Perhaps! We anticipate families wanting to return again and again and they are advised to invest in a Friends membership, only £25, so the whole family can visitFREE for the rest of the year. There will also be promotional offers during this exhibition. A leaflet detailing the changing programme will be released and our website, as always, gives up to date info.
