The show must go on

Mon, 12 April 2021 - Mon, 6 December 2021

Explore the mood-boosting power of entertainment in times of uncertainty with our FREE exhibition.

The exhibition case is in our entrance way.  Due to the fact our gift shop is open, it means you can experience at least a little of our vast collection despite the main part of the museum remaining closed for the time being.

The show must go on. From gang shows and recitals dreamt up to pass the time, relieve boredom and lift spirits to dressing up and general playing the fool with your mates, we hope you’ll be cheered by the creativity borne out of the simple desire to make a bad situation better.

We’ve been inspired to bring you this free mini exhibition by our friends across the marketplace at The Georgian Theatre Royal.  They have used their lengthy enforced corona closure to carry out a complete refurbishment of their auditorium to improve surroundings for theatre goers when they are allowed to return.

The show WILL go on!

Type of event: Special exhibition
