THE refurbished Beverley Community Museum in the Guildhall has been officially opened.
The project was funded by a £20,000 grant from Arts Council England and has paid for the installation of new LED lighting in the museum, along with new bespoke furniture and an opportunity to display new exhibitions.
The museum has reopened with a display called ‘Tales of the Town’, which gives Beverley residents a chance to find out much more about the history and development of their town. It includes an exhibition called ‘Keeping the home fires burning’ – how the First World War affected Beverley.
The Community Museum is open – free of charge – on Fridays all year round from 10am to 4pm, and on Wednesdays until late October from 10am to 4pm. There will be an additional opening on Saturday, August 16 from 10am to 4 pm to give visitors an extra chance to see the new exhibitions
