Royston Museum Re-Open For Summer 2021

16th August 2021 posted in LANDLORDS BUYERS

We’ve all had things we miss doing over the past year, and it is only natural people are looking for ways to reconnect with their favourite pastimes and hobbies as we move forward.

One of the biggest losses in the local area has been Royston Museum, but this is why there is good news for locals, and the people who travel a distance to see the museum in all its glory. The museum, located at 5 Lower King Street, reopened on Saturday July 31st, and we can’t wait to see what it is like again.

Book tickets to secure your return to Royston Museum

Of course, there will be a limit on the number of people who can entry the museum for a while. It is possible to arrange tickets on the Eventbrite website, so if you are keen to go soon, make sure you are in place for one of the best local attractions.

Something we love about Royston Museum is that it shines a light on the town, it’s people, and its story. No matter how long you have lived in or around Royston for, if you are keen to learn more about the town, you have the perfect opportunity to do so, right on your doorstep.
Learn about life in the United Kingdom

You will also find plenty of other great activities and attractions, allowing you to learn about life all across the United Kingdom. There are items from prehistoric times, and you can enjoy a collection of farming and household memorabilia from the Victorian era.

Amy Judd, the acting museum lead, said; “We have brand new items on display, showcased using an innovative and fascinating timeline which has objects from 3,000 years ago up until the present day and focuses on specific periods throughout Royston’s history, such as the Romans. We also have items from the 1600s from when King James 1st (of England and 6th of Scotland) lived opposite the museum. There’s old boots and coins, medals from the Victorian era, plus more recent items such as an extremely rare Sinclair ZX car!"

Amy also said; “We’ve also refreshed our displays with new art from our collection that has not been on display for the last decade. I particularly like that two of the sweetest things are drawings by children from the 1980s, one of a kingfisher and another of a squirrel. Which you’ll find sitting side by side paintings by Ernest Whydale, a world-famous local painter.”

Something to look forward to is the number of activity trails which are being designed for youngsters attending the museum. These trails will hopefully engage youngsters, and help them learn more about what is on offer.

Amy Judd also said; “This is inspired by our unique outfit, where the fabric is printed with the front page of the Royston Crow from 1960. We are inviting kids to design their own outfits and create the image they would put on a T-shirt.”
