Autumn Newsletter- Dates for your Diary!

Wednesday, September 4th, 2013

The summer has flown by, if you haven’t seen the wonderful pictures of our summer activities on facebook then do take a look!

Sadly the start of September means it’s time to say goodbye to our Hertford County Hospital exhibition (you’ve got until Saturday for one last visit!) but there’s so much happening this autumn at Hertford Museum there won’t be time to miss it!

Our latest newsletter is now out and you can download it from our website or pick up a copy at the museum and it’s FULL of exhibitions, walks, talks, events and activities. Our next exhibition 18 Bull Plain opens on Saturday 14th September with a special Birthday Party celebrating our 100th anniversary in this building and after that it’s only 6 weeks till our World of Wallace exhibition opens!

Happy Anniversary Hertford County Hospital

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

Last weekend we celebrated 180 years of Hertford County Hospital. On Saturday there was party for current and past staff at the hospital itself and then on Sunday St Andrews Church hosted a service of thanksgiving.

It was lovely to see how important and loved Hertford County Hospital was to so many people and just how many people turned out despite the heat and the tennis!

We’re just three days away from the opening of our Hertford County Hospital exhibition so while we keep working on that here are some pictures from the weekend.

Thursday, July 4th, 2013

We’ve had so much going on recently I’m afraid this week’s blog is a day late (sorry!)

Bengeo Stories closed on Saturday and Hertford County Hospital opens on Saturday 13th July so we’re currently switching between the two AND preparing for our summer activities AND working hard to make sure that this autumn’s World of Wallace exhibition is ready for you.

So here are a few photos of what’s going on behind the scenes at the museum today.
