April 2010 News Update

Apologies for the lack of postings recently but there have been so many things happening that it's been hard to keep track. The museum has been asked to be involved in a range of upcoming events over the next twelve months, ranging from an appearance at the Ditchling Festival on the 19th June, a talk at the Port Eliot Festival in July and involvement in several exhibitions next year at Pallant House and the Whitechapel Gallery in London. We have also been asked to host a seminar around the notion of 'Britishness' at the South Bank in September.

Plans are moving ahead to mount an exhibition on the history of the UK's Fireworks industry for 2011 on November 5th in London. This will mainly feature one individual's unique collection of fireworks gathered over the past forty years. The exhibition will also examine the folklore surrounding Bonfire Night and associated fire festivals which take place around that time of year. Further postings will appear as events get confirmed.
