If you follow us on twitter or facebook you’ll have seen that on Friday the museum was being aken over by students from Simon Balle school as part of Takeover Day.
The students designed trails around the museum and made their own posters to advertise the day and they even made cakes in case anyone turned up expecting the Hertford Country Market! In the afternoon pupils from local primary schools visited and were shown round by the students as well. It was a fantastic day and very well planned by the student team (we’re all a bit nervous for our jobs now!)
Then on Saturday the Andrews Room was taken over by the Hertford and District Camera Club annual exhibition. The exhibition was a great success and you can see the lists of winners on their website.
And there’s still one more very important takeover to come- this Friday evening the museum is going to be hosting Father Christmas himself as part of the Hertford Christmas Lights Switch On and our own Christmas Spectacular.
Father Christmas will be at the museum from 4-6pm and then from 6.45-8pm (in between he’ll be switching the lights on in the town centre) so drop in to say hello (£1.50 per child including a present!) and you can also have a go at a free Christmas craft and from 5.45-6.15 we’ll have St Andrews Church Choir singing festive carols too.
You can see what we got up to at least year’s Christmas Spectacular on our YouTube channel!
