  In your wanderings up & down Fore Street we hope that you have had an opportunity to pause & look at the recent window display which featured scenes from the Victorian Schoolroom. Called Back to School, the challenges of the classroom in yesteryear were certainly brought to the fore......what a stark contrast to today's modern classroom !?

Lostwithiel Museum Advent Display Christmas 2015

Deborah Clough, our Museum Window Co-ordinator, is busily creating the next window display in time for the Advent season. As the Museum is No' 2 [2 Dec] on the Advent Trail the new display will  probably be in place by the time you read this. The chosen theme,  The Cease Fire Football Match on Christmas Day 1917, will not be without its poignancy. This theme is quite a departure from the usual Advent display, a good example of Deborah's ability to think outside the box. Sourcing an authentic leather football has been a challenge but  Marazion Museum  are helping  us out. Many thanks to our Museum scouts for their sleuthing skills !
