New chapter in the history of Daventry town museum

THE next stage in the development of Daventry’s museum will be unveiled tonight (Thursday).

Daventry Town Council Museum has £125,055 to launch ‘Sharing Stories – a people’s museum for Daventry’ designed to get more of the community involved with its history.

Tonight’s event starts at 6pm at the council offices and is open to anyone interested in what the museum has planned, or who wants to get involved.

The museum is based at the council’s offices in New Street and run by a team of volunteers to look after the items and put together the displays around Daventry’s history.

Currently it usually opens to the public on the first Saturday of the month.

Tonight’s event runs from 6pm to 7.30pm and is open to anyone who wants to go along.
