This November marks the 100th anniversary since the unveiling of Royston’s war memorial.
To mark the event, Royston Museum is launching a brand new exhibition about Royston’s fundraising efforts during the Wars.
Discover the lady who pickled 3000 eggs and the rose-sellers who took the town hostage. Up on the gallery, we’ll also have over 40 incredible sketches on display, drawn by Royston-born soldier Jack Halstead during his time in the trenches. The exhibition runs from 10th November 2022 – 4th March 2023. Free entry.
On 12th November, 10am – 4pm, drop in for a special open day to celebrate the exhibition’s launch. Join in with crafts from the home front, make flags and poppy wreaths, and meet the authors of a brilliant new publication about the lives of the soldiers featured on Royston’s memorial. Free entry but donations are welcome.
Plus, the holidays are coming! On 10th December, we’re wrapping up the year with a Dickensian Christmas bonanza! Play festive Victorian games, make yuletide decorations, listen to carols, drink mulled wine and meet Father Christmas in our winter Grotto! Drop in 10am – 4pm. Free entry. £3 for admission to the Grotto.
