‘Pop-Up’ Museum of Lost Words

Tuesday 21 August 1pm -3.30pm

Come and visit our extraordinary pop-up museum of lost words. Do you have a word to share and display in our museum?  We are celebrating all the fantastic special words that we have in our region and comparing our words to other areas. How many words can one country have for a bread roll? Share your special words on our Fantastic Family Word Tree, dine out on our Dialect Picnic, interview your friends and family.

This exciting project is part of Heritage Lottery Funded project led by the University of Leeds.

 

Sounds Amazing – A Festival of Music & Lights

Saturday 25 August 2018, 6pm – 10.30pm

Book tickets online here via Eventbrite [click the link]

Sounds Amazing is an evening festival of music set in the historic buildings and grounds of Avoncroft Museum which will be illuminated as night falls.

Spend a summer evening with family and friends wandering through the grounds of this wonderful heritage site and discover live performances by local amateur and professional musicians in the historic buildings, parkland, gardens and orchards. Community choirs, groups, soloists, quartets and singer-songwriters will provide entertainment throughout the evening along with wandering minstrels, dancers, buskers and story-tellers of enchanting tales. There will be something for everyone – from Folk, Rock, Classical and Acoustic music to hits of the ’50’s, ’60’s and ’70’s. As dusk falls, absorb the magical atmosphere of the buildings and trees as they are illuminated for the evening.

Bring a picnic and treat yourself to refreshments from the onsite caterers. Entry is free for Children under 5 years and there is a children’s play area. Well-behaved music-loving dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead at all times.

We look forward to seeing you at this one-off ‘Sounds Amazing’ event celebrating 100 years of the WFWI inspiring women and supporting communities across Worcestershire.

Sounds Amazing is a fundraising event for WFWI, a Registered Charity in England and Wales No. 228664
