During 2014, the anniversary of the start of film-making in the local studios we filled the Community Museum with an special 3 month long Centenary Exhibition.
Feedback from over 1,700 visitors was positive and encouraging, with many calling for a permanent exhibition to be set up in the Town and dedicated to film and TV. To read examples of feedback please follow this link.
Museum staff sold books, DVD’s and our new Centenary Badge on our behalf at the Welcome Desk set up in the foyer on Saturdays.
Before the Exhibition opened we met with Museum volunteers to brief them and address any concerns, and afterwards we met with them to discuss lessons learned.
