Museum opening

Berwick Museum & Art Gallery opens for the new season on Wednesday 28th March 2018, with two new temporary exhibitions on display:

Entitled “Fragments”, the first exhibition is the final round up of the arts & culture strand of the Peregrini Project. It is displaying pots by Graham Taylor of Rothbury, who ran several pottery workshops at the museum last season, and will provide community engagement work at the museum this season. There is also a display of photographs by Jose Snook and poetry by Katrina Porteous.

Accompanying and complementing the Fragments exhibition, the Museum  stages a small seaside exhibition about Spittal, showing artefacts from the collections – e.g. the museum’s pottery model of Spittal High Street, made by local artist Arthur Wood, the cycle and football machines from the Spittal Amusement Pavilion, and items from the Venetian Café.

The Museum is open throughout the Easter weekend.  Admission is free to members of FBDMA.  For full details of opening hours and other admission arrangements, see this page.
