Free fun at Museum on Cotswold Heritage Open Day

Share this article

Free fun for all the family is on offer at the Corinium Museum, Cirencester, on Saturday, September 13th as part of the national Heritage Open Days scheme.
The popular museum is taking part in the annual event by waiving its usual admission fee to allow visitors to celebrate culture on their doorstep.

As an added bonus, the Museum is providing some fun events for families and is playing host to local musicians and singers in its fabulous Hare Gallery. Brass rubbing, mask making, trying on replica historic costumes and pitting wits against fiendish museum trails are on offer for younger visitors –  and for those who are young at heart!

The Museum will be open from 10am to 5pm. From 1.30pm, the Hare Gallery will be filled with the sound of three local music groups: The Corinium Players, a young guitar group, Village Voices, a choir for people aged over 50 from the Kemble area, and singers trained by Maria Jagusz will be among those performing.

Heritage Open Days, co-ordinated by the Civic Trust, celebrate  England’s architecture and culture by allowing visitors free access to interesting properties that are either not usually open, or would normally charge an entrance fee. The scheme also includes tours, events and activities that focus on local architecture and culture.
Museum Education Officer Rachael Holtom said: “This is a great opportunity for people to learn a little more about our Cotswold heritage and – most important of all – have a great free day out.”

Morris Leslie plant hire company rises from losing millions to investing £70m

Perthshire plant hire giant Morris Leslie was hit hard by the Covid 19 pandemic, however the company was struggling before that because of Brexit. Six months before Covid 19 shut down building sites and locked down the UK the company Morris Leslie has already experienced tough times. Uncertainty because of Brexit had already caused building projects to be shut down or paused causing a much lower demand for plant hires and sales. This slowdown had caused an oversupply of construction equipment meaning more competition and so reduced prices. Then Covid 19 hit and the group’s vehicle auctions and Sunday car boot market were shut down.
