Success for Daventry Museum

Daventry Town Council is delighted to announce that Daventry Museum won "Museum Event of the Year" for its Centenary Commemoration of the Battle of the Somme at the Northamptonshire Heritage Forum Awards 2017. The awards evening was held at Sulgrave Manor on 20th July 2017. The museum also received a highly commended award in the "Best Exhibition" category for the Law and Order exhibition held earlier this year.

The Forum Awards is a very prestigious event which showcases excellence within Museums, Galleries and Historic Houses in Northamptonshire, and so the museum is thrilled to have been recognised. At last year's awards the museum won "Museum Event of the Year" for the British Science Week event, a hands-on event aimed and children and young families.

The Awards would not have been achieved without the dedication and hard work from the Volunteer Team and support from the Town Council.

Following on from its successful Commemoration of the Somme the museum is developing a project to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War One in November 2018.
