From Friday May 24th until October, we have our summer exhibition of 2019 open for you to come and visit. This exhibition displays a large number of children’s toys and games, both commercial and handmade, dating back from the 1960s to Victorian days. It includes a series of posters telling the stories of many of these items, quite a lot of which have been kindly loaned by Southam residents in addition to those from the Collection. These much-treasured toys and games now seeing the light of day have been lovingly stored away by their owners as treasured memories of fondly remembered childhood hours when life was so much simpler. Come and see if your own toys are featured or remember who was on ‘Watch with Mother’.
It is an interactive exhibition with the opportunity to try your hand at bagatelle, learn the ancient hunt board game of “Fox and Geese” or challenge a friend with an old favourite such as ‘Snakes and Ladders’ or ‘Chess’, plus all our usual local history booklets and 200 Club tickets are available for purchase.
Come and take a look. The Exhibition is open in Tithe Place opposite Southam Library as follows:
Tuesday, Friday and Saturday mornings 10:00 to 12:00 until late October.
Contact us for group visits at other times.
