Annual Members – winter opening 2016-2017

Our thanks to our Annual Members for your support during 2016. As I’m sure you are aware, as a registered charity we receive no regular Government funding, so revenue from Annual Memberships such as yours is greatly appreciated.

Changes to our winter opening dates

We are now entering the final stages of the Gateway Project and need to close parts of the Museum for a time, to allow work to be undertaken. Although closed to the public, Annual Members are welcome to enjoy the Museum as a park (the exhibit buildings will be locked) every day from 28th November to 28th February, with the exception of these dates:

  • 24 – 25 December 2016
  • 28 December 2016 – 2 January 2017

The year ahead

Next year promises to be exciting, as we open the doors to our new visitor centre and café at Easter, plan several new exhibit buildings and add two new major events to our annual programme. It is our aim to continue bringing the Museum to life, with more historic demonstrations, more people dressed in replica clothing and more exhibit buildings for our visitors to enjoy. With all these developments in mind, the Museum will relaunch as the Weald & Downland Living Museum in spring 2017.

Thank you again for your ongoing support and we very much look forward to welcoming you to the Museum very soon.
