Take part in a community conversation about Queen Street Mill Textile Museum

Tuesday, September 04, 2018

An event will be held this week about setting up a Friends Group for Queen Street Mill Textile Museum.

People are being invited to come along and share their views about helping support the future of the museum.

The meeting, called Community Conversation, will take place on Thursday 6 September at the museum at 6pm.

County Councillor Cosima Towneley, Chair of the Cabinet Working Group for Museums, said:" I hope that anyone who is interested in the future of Queen Street Mill comes along to the meeting.

"I'm really keen to hear local voices, and make sure that they are heard. We have a wealth of passion and talent in the area, and I want to encourage this. I'd especially love to hear people's thoughts on the setting up of a Friends Group for the museum, and whether or not they think that this would be a good way forward.

"It really doesn't matter whether you are a lover of history, want to find out more yourself, or live nearby. If you want to be involved, just come along with your ideas and discuss them face-to-face. Your thoughts and ideas are really important to us."

There's no need to book, just drop in for a chat and refreshments.

The meeting will start at 6pm with a tour of the museum.
