What are museums for?
This area is reasonably well provided with museums, which is only right for such an interesting and historic part of Devon. They all have their special appeal. Some are luckier than others in that they are financially well endowed; others will tell you that they operate on a shoestring budget.
But what are they for? That’s the question that Friend of Fairlynch and museum enthusiast Mike Wilson will be trying to answer in a talk he’s giving to the Woodbury Local History Society on Thursday 5 May 2016 at 7.30 pm in Woodbury Village Hall.
Mike and his wife Margaret have been involved in preparing exhibitions at both Topsham and Fairlynch Museums, and spend a fair bit of time in retirement visiting places all over the world, including museums of course. Always happy to ruffle a few feathers, Mike enjoys speaking his mind on a wide range of issues. It promises to be a thought-provoking evening.
Admission charge: £4 for non-members.
