An amazing experience. Obviously, numbers were down the first few days because of the sad news of the Queen's death, but overall the event was warmly received by visitors with lots of new engagement and supporters.
Why we take part
To share our collections. As we are normally closed (until we open a new museum in 2025) this is a key engagement opportunity for us. As a small organisation, we don’t have lots of marketing power so being part of a national festival is a great opportunity for us.
What we do for HODs
Wonderful experience, friendly knowledgeable staff. Blew my socks off!
Fantastic interpretation - amazing!
Nice surprise & best bit!
How long visitors stayed and engaged with us at every level. Seeing people walk through the door unsure of what they would be seeing and leaving with massive smiles on their faces having been surprised and delighted by our offer.
Sam's top tip!
Just go for it. Don’t underestimate how long it takes to arrange events and make sure you publicise.
