Exciting season ahead for Community Museum

Fine art, photography and physical design are just some of the things set to be installed in Letchworth as part of the Community Museum’s latest programme.

The Community Museum, housed in the Arcade in the town centre and managed by Letchworth Heritage Foundation, is opening its doors to a variety of local groups, artists and schools to exhibit their works, as well as hosting its own exhibition in the summer.

Josh Tidy, curator for the Community Museum said “We’re really looking forward to hosting this season of exhibitions and I’m very interested to see some of the exciting works that we have coming up.

“Some of the highlights include the annual St Christopher’s fashion show, which tasks the students with creating unique garments out of recycled materials, and a crafts exhibition organised by Letchworth Settlement, not to mention our own exhibition which we will be on display during the summer”.

The programme started last month with the Fearnhill School sixth form art exhibition showcasing work from the students, running until 20 February. The exhibition is open on Thursdays and Fridays from 11am-3pm and Saturday from 10am-1pm.

The Community Museum opened in 2015 to provide a space to display temporary exhibitions created by a variety of local clubs, groups and organisations.
