Pop-Up Shop and Exhibition

This past month has seen things hotting up in preparation for both the forthcoming MoBF exhibition, 'Remember, Remember: A history of fireworks in Britain' and also the Museum's first ever pop-up exhibition/shop, which will open on Oct 4th in Stratford-upon-Avon. Details for the exhibition can be seen at

As well as showing items from the Museum of British Folklore collection, visitors will be able to purchase a wide range of lovely things to help support the museum and its development. Along with Museum mugs and T-shirts complete with the Jonny Hannah designed logo and icons, there will be a positive plethora of Firework related merchandise. Tote bags and tea-towels, posters, postcards, giant fireworks filled with matches and pencils, firework inspired embroidery kits, cushions and toys, jewellery and even headwear, will all pay homage to the UK's rich firework heritage. A publication to accompany the exhibition will be for sale priced at £19.99. Many of these items will also be available at Compton Verney in case you should miss the pop-up shop.
