Museum Special Events

Visitors to an exhibition



As well as the regular displays in the Museum, the Old Rectory will, from time to time, put on some special events. These could be topical or themed exhibitions in the Museum itself, or something just a bit different in the grounds of the Rectory or elsewhere.

Recently we have become a popular venue for art exhibitions showcasing the work of local artists.






During September and October of 2019, the museum was the venue for an exhibition called ...

Connections

....responses to the rectory, featuring the recent work of artists Glenda Thomson, Amerjit Young, Mary Byrne and Beryl Miles.
