Save the date for the 2018 Annual Seminar

Suffolk Punch heavy horses working at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse, Norfolk

Horse Power at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse

Save the date!  The annual seminar of the Rural Museums Network will take place on Sunday 30 September and Monday 1 October 2018 at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse in Norfolk.

Join us on Sunday 30 September and experience the museum’s annual Horse Power! event.  This celebration of the work of heavy horses will focus on Gressenhall’s traditional farm.  Watch as the museum’s Suffolk Punch horses are joined by visiting teams to carry out seasonal tasks, talk to those who work with these impressive animals and explore all that the 50-acre site has to offer.

Meet the Gressenhall team and fellow Rural Museums Network members to find out more about Gressenhall’s engaging events programme.  Horse Power! runs from 10am to 5pm.

For those staying locally, on Sunday evening there will be the chance to meet more RMN members for an informal dinner or drinks.

On Monday 1 October, we’ll continue the discussions.  A brief AGM will be followed by a day of seminars and tours exploring the new displays.  Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse has recently relaunched following a major £1.8million redevelopment of its Workhouse and Museum of Norfolk Life galleries, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.  During the day there will be the chance to discuss the impact of this work and lessons learned with the wider project team.

We very much hope that members will be able to join us for one or both days.  For more information, please click here to contact us>>
