News & Events for Wallingford Museum
Looking forward to new exhibitions
- at Wallingford Museum in 2017
Wallingford Museum is currently undergoing its winter refurbishment.
When it re-opens on 1st March 2017 there will be three special exhibitions:-
* 'Pettits: past to present'
* 'Wallingford Castle - the Inside Story'
* 'Ways to Wallingford'
together with new material added to the Agatha Christie and Midsomer Murders displays.
Watch out for further information!
Museum Bookshop open
Whilst Wallingford Museum is closed for its winter break, the highly successful Museum bookshop, with its constantly changing stock of good second-hand books (both fiction and non-fiction), will remain open until the end of February. The shop will be open on Fridays and Saturdays from 10.30am to 1.00pm.
Do please continue to donate your second-hand books - and particularly those with an Agatha Christie connection!
Regular Town Walks resume at Easter 2017!
We’re delighted to announce that you can now join a Guided Historic Town Walk on any Saturday morning from Easter 2017 until the end of September, starting from the Town Hall at 11.00am. Walks last 1 - 2 hours and cost £5 per head, money which will be donated to support Wallingford Museum.
These are general walks covering the rich history of our town, but also touching on the links with Agatha Christie and 'Midsomer Murders'. They will appeal to residents and visitors alike.
There’s no need to book, just turn up at the Town Hall at 11.00am on any Saturday until end-Sept.
If you’d like to organise a Town Walk like this for your group / society / school at a different time, then please contact Philip Burton on 01491-836200 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Walks can be led by a German-speaking guide - please contact Philip in advance to arrange.
Alternatively, we also offer more specialist history walks by arrangement - an in-depth view of the Town or Castle, or of Agatha Christie's 42 years in the town - tailored to your group's interests. (These walks can also be combined with a visit to Wallingford Museum). To pursue this option, please contact Judy Dewey on 01491- 651127 or email@example.com
Can you help us?
Wallingford Museum is looking for people to help with the running of this popular attraction and we would love to hear from you if you have half a day or more to spare once a month. Our band of volunteer custodians are critical to the museum's success and we need people to greet visitors and be in attendance for a morning or afternoon once a month between March and November.
No previous experience necessary other than a desire to meet people!
Please contact Gerard Latham on 01491 832224 or email Gerard@walcots.co.uk
