Music Night - An Evening of Talent and Fun

 

As part of its 'Victorian Christmas' celebrations, the Museum hosted an evening of music and singing on Sat December 9th. Several of the guests turned up in full Victorian costume, adding to the festive spirit of the occasion.

Superbly led by Roy Nash and Noel Dumbrell, it was a wonderful evening of singing and instrumental talent, complemented by a full licensed bar and lavish Victorian Christmas decorations. All present enjoyed themselves and we only hope that we can manage to organise another musical event early next Spring!


A sad goodbye to Claire, our curator


As of the 30th December 2006 Claire Eden will no longer be the Curator of the Toy Museum due to funding for her post running out! Here is a message from her to all the Museum visitors, patrons, Friends and staff:
" I have had a wonderful time at the Museum, and I have really enjoyed setting up the new exhibition and events programme Making History Fun, helping to prepare the Museum's Accreditation application and trying to keep up - and where possible improve on - the Museum's fantastic reputation. It will be extremely sad to go, but I know that the volunteers and staff are more than capable of carrying on the work that I started. Thank you to everyone who has made this experience so wonderful, from visiting the Museum as a one off to long standing members! I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,
Goodbye!
Claire "
