Now that Royston & District Museum is back open, assistant Jenny Benton has two new exhibitions up and running.

Balcony exhibition Royston’s Postal History explores the origins and different stages in the development of the local post service including the different post offices in the surrounding villages.

The brand new Community Cabinet display ‘Royston in Winter!’ features photographs and other items from the museum’s collection which illustrate activities and events local people were participating in around the town over the years.

To coincide with the exhibition the museum will be using the hash tag #RoystoninWinter on Facebook and Twitter.

Museum assistant Jenny Benton said: “People can participate by sharing with us photographs of the town as it celebrates this festive and frosty time of year!”

Tomorrow Crafty Kids returns with a Merry Christmas themed morning suitable for kids aged from four to 10 years.

It costs £3 per child, and there’s no need to book in advance.

Full event listings can be found on the website or Twitter or Facebook by searching ‘Royston Museum’. For more information or to book onto an event email or call (01763) 242587.
