Cuddly Toy Sleepover

Our mascot, Museum Elephant poses for the camera.

Bring your cuddlies to the museum for a Cuddly Toy Sleepover!

Bring them along on Wednesday 19th February. They’ll sleep over and you can pick them up on Thursday 20th February.

It’s free for your cuddlies to join in and Museum Elephant would love to meet cuddlies from people of all ages. Grown ups, get involved too!

We’ll provide warm snuggly blankets and will of course, read them some bedtime stories.

We’ll be taking photos of the fun they get up to during their night at the museum.

Church Art Exhibition

Royston Museum calls for submissions of 2-D art to be sold in support of the Parish Church.

We are hosting an exhibit of donated work; with all works to be for sale, and all proceeds to benefit the rebuilding work of St John the Baptist. We invite local artists to create works based on the theme of the Royston Parish Church. Please bring them to the Museum by August 15th.

The Church suffered a drastic fire shortly before Christmas 2018, and is undergoing conservation and restoration. We’ll list all art for sale, and the Museum will waive its normal fees and commissions in favour of donating all proceeds to the Church rebuilding fund.

For more information, please contact us.
