About Museum Socials

Our Socials create a friendly environment where everyone is welcome and all contributions are valued. They are suitable for first-time visitors and for those who might not regularly come to the museum, as well as people who have always loved visiting.

Our sessions are relaxed and informal, start with tea and cake, and feature a range of activities inspired by our collections. Each month has a different theme, so take a look at the dates and topics below.
