A year of creative fun for families at Wisbech Museum

A year of creative fun for families at Wisbech Museum

The 2024 programme of fun creative workshops for families at the Museum has begun.

Many families called-in over a busy February half term and had a great time learning how to make prints as part of programming linked to the Museum’s latest exhibition, Prints, Paint and Pencil.


Over Easter, the Museum will be hosting the 2024 Young Arts Open exhibition and will be offering a packed programme of creative activities for families and young people.


Thanks to a £1,700 grant awarded to the Museum by the Fenland Culture Fund, a programme of free public events linked to the Museum’s summer holiday exhibition ‘Beasts’, which will showcase epic creatures both real and imagined from across the Museum’s eclectic collection, will begin in July. The events will be created in partnership with young people aged 8 to 19 taking part in the Arts Ambassador programme delivered by 20TwentyProductions CIC.




Louise Haselgrove, Learning and Community Participation Officer at the Museum, said: “The Museum is delighted to have been awarded a Fenland Culture Fund grant that will support and extend our work with young people giving them the opportunity to shape and improve our programming.”

The Fenland Culture Fund is managed by Fenland District Council with funding from the Government’s UK Shared Prosperity Fund and Arts Council England and is a partnership project with Arts Fundraising and Philanthropy.
