What's On at Saffron Walden Museum
Local residents may be interested to know about Saffron Walden Museum’s summer exhibition and activities, focussing on the natural history of Uttlesford.
Saffron Walden Museum’s summer exhibition Take Away the Walls explores the everyday wildlife of north-west Essex (25 May – 3 Nov 2019). Discover how human actions affect the area’s distinctive plants and animals, for good or bad, and go home inspired to help protect them into the future. Join in with activities for all ages across the district, starting with ‘Wildlife at Night: Wildlife Extravaganza’ on Friday 17 May, 6-9.30pm, at Saffron Walden Museum. Create a wildflower seed bomb, learn to make a flat-pack bird box, and track bats, moths and more across Saffron Walden town centre. For more information visit www.saffronwaldenmuseum.com or contact Natural Sciences Officer James Lumbard [email protected] .
In addition, the Museum is also appealing for funds to help us acquire several items of archaeological treasure for the district; an exquisite medieval reliquary pendant from Farnham parish, a rare Saxon coin from Ugley parish, and two small rings – one prehistoric and one 17th century - from Lindsell parish. I have attached a handout which can be displayed or passed to local history groups and anyone who might be interested.
