If you have a right royal collection of memorabilia then Frenchay Museum would love to hear from you. The museum is putting the finishing touches to a Jubilee exhibition extravaganza and are looking for loans of commemorative mementos and to see photos and hear stories about local Royal events to build up a unique social history archive.
Metro Mayor Dan Norris is running an Explore Local campaign, encouraging people to visit fantastic local attractions on their doorstep. The Metro Mayor took a walk through a timeline of coronations, street parties and royal festivities when he launched the special exhibition from the Begbrook Park-based museum.
The Jubilee exhibition features royal memorabilia – from Her Majesty’s cups, plates, bunting to hairpins and more – and is running until the end of September.
Metro Mayor Dan Norris said: “The forthcoming Jubilee Break is a great reason to get out and about. Whether you’re a Royalist or Republican the Royal Family are an integral part of our great nation’s history. This is a fascinating look at how people in Frenchay have celebrated other Royal milestones. So if you like the pomp and pageantry, this brand-new exhibition marking the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is for you”.
Before seeing the brand-new exhibit, Mayor Norris met with museum trustee Carol Thorn and volunteers to discuss the museum’s exciting expansion plans.
