BEWDLEY museum is set to open its doors on March 4 following its winter break.

This year's family-friendly events include a production of David Walliams’ Bad Dad, regular children’s craft activities, and the annual Cherry Fair.

There’s a murder mystery evening, an outdoor theatre production of ‘MacHamLear’, paranormal goings on, a ghost walk and an unknown Pre-Raphaelite exhibition.

Bewdley Museum is also joining national celebrations for King Charles III’s Coronation.

On Monday, May 8 there will be a patriotic performance by Bewdley Concert Band, set in the museum’s beautiful gardens.

The museum’s craftspeople are in action all year round. A small group of artisans produce their wares under the distinct ‘Made in the Museum’ Bewdley, label. The museum is also a popular spot for weddings.

Deputy leader of the council and cabinet member for culture, leisure and community safety, Graham Ballinger said: “I never fail to be delighted by a visit to our museum. It’s always a place to learn something new but at the same time feel nostalgic and respectful about what the people of Wyre Forest have achieved, often in very tough times. It remains free to visit, so there are plenty of opportunities to come back time and again to enjoy the new exhibitions.”
