Winter Closing
Published:19th Oct 2020 by Carolyne Haynes

This Thursday - the 22nd October - is the last chance to visit the museum without signing up for an event. We always close at the end of October as the museum gets far too cold for comfort. This year, because we are only open one day a week, the Thursday in half term is our Halloween Event. Sadly, this makes an ordinary visit rather challenging.

We will be running some kind of Christmas events in November. Exact details are not clear so please keep an eye on the website and Facebook for updates.

We are fundraising !

Please help us Save Our Brickworks!

We have been hit very hard by the virus. 2020 was going to be our first year of breaking even....and then along came March! With 90% of our income vanishing before our eyes we have been putting all our efforts into surviving. With help from the local authority, Arts Council England and the National Lottery Heritage Fund we are slowly getting there. 

Our biggest problem is closing for the winter months. Once the end of October comes we have very little chance of earning any income until our first events next year. Can you help us? Any amount, it doesn't matter how small, will be fantastic. There is a donate button below, or, cheques can be sent to our postal address. They need to be made out to Bursledon Brickworks Museum Trust.

Thank you so much. We hope to see lots of you again very soon.
