Monthly update, July 2019
A number of activities were held at the Museum as part of the Denbigh Midsummer Festival celebrations. The first was the Coffee Morning on the first day of June and thanks to everyone who supported us, including people who travelled specifically from Rhyl and Llangollen. While people drank their coffee and chatted downstairs, others were enjoying a craft session upstairs. The children created suns from salt dough, baked them in the oven and painted and varnished them. They also created origami suns. The adults painted silk and created very attractive greeting cards. The Craft Sessions are held on the first Saturday of the month throughout the year, 10.30-12.30, and are open to 6-12 year olds. Anyone is welcome to pop in. Our Education Team is also keen to visit schools and children's groups, to organise activities related to broadcasting and the Radios Museum.
Thank you to everyone who was brave enough to come to the Quiz Night on an exceptionally wet evening! It was an evening of keen competition and fun.
A Technical Hands-On Day was held on the 15th and it was good to see families popping in. Rhys and Seren are pictured working on Morse Code. It was also good to welcome a visitor from Liverpool Museum to our midst for the second time.
The Museum will be open every Monday and Saturday in July and August. We will also be at the Denbigh Show and in the Science Pavilion at the National Eisteddfod in Llanrwst. From the beginning of September we will be opening on Friday instead of Monday, and on the first Saturday of every month. It is possible, of course, for anyone to visit the Museum at any time, by prior arrangement on email,
