Kingswood Heritage Museum is gearing up for its new season, starting in April.
Museum volunteer Peter Wakeman has created this video ‘Current Work at the KHM’:
New subjects for this season include a feature on Haskins Pottery of Warmley, which closed 50 years ago this April, and a commemoration of the opening of Cossham Hospital one hundred and ten years ago, in June 1907. Later in the year, the Museum plans a special exhibition centred on Staple Hill.
At the same time, many of the regular attractions, like the successful display celebrating the local corsetmaking business, are being revised and updated for the new year. The picture shows Alan Chillcott, assisted by Alan Bryant, fixing a new ceiling for the 1950s room.
Alan Bryant, Joint Museum Curator, said: “We are very much looking forward to the 2017 season, and as usual we welcome contributions from local people to add to our knowledge of the area. Anyone with a story to tell, or artefacts for display, is encouraged to contact us at [email protected]
The Museum will open on 1 April, and then on Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays until 28 November from 2.00pm until 5.00pm, and on Bank Holidays between 11.00am and 5.00pm.
