Spooky times, Victorian times, takeover times

Phew it was busy last week. Awesome owls were made and spotted, Scaplen’s Court was scary, ghost walks ghoulishly garnished the end of the week.

This week we’re welcoming lots of schools who are investigating local history and thinking about the Victorians and World War Two. We’re also starting a pilot project called Young Curators, which blends digital learning and historical research – it’s quite cool to mix up old and new!

Last Saturday we ran our first training session for this year’s Takeover Day cohort and have another training day this Saturday. The young people involved this year are exceptional and so we are particularly excited about this year’s event. So if you’re free pop down on 20th November and find out what it’s all about. Otherwise, keep an eye on the blog and we’ll keep you posted.
