Monthly Update, July 2017. 

 

On Friday evening, May 19th, Steffan Tudor, the Head of the Physics Department at Ysgol Glan Clwyd, gave us a very comprehensive lecture on Particle Physics and his Visit to C.E.R.N., “Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire” in Geneva in 2015.  The lecture was interactive and Mr. Tudor questioned the audience and used experiments to develop his talk.  By looking at the number and quality of the questions and comments from the audience at the end of the lecture, the evening was a huge success.  Thanks to him for his enthusiasm.

Our Open Day on the following day was a success also, as we took part in the Gwanwyn Festival.  This is a festival which celebrates creativity amongst older people and we tried our hand at Encaustic Art and watched how a Sparks Transmitter works.  People also admired the "new" Voigt Corner Horn and were astounded at the quality of the sound.

 

£334 was raised in the Coffee Morning in Eirianfa on June 3rd, in conjunction with Denbigh Film Club.  Thanks to everyone who supported us, especially the Mayor and Mayoress.

HLF Project

The 2 year project to develop our learning provision came to an end in April 2013.  It was funded by the Heritage Lotetry Fund and enabled us to have 3 part time members of staff to develop learning resources, improve learning displays, organise events, visits to the museum etc.  Further details available by clicking on Projects in the main menu above or by clicking here.Lottery Logo
