Market Lavington Museum

Miscellany 2012

Today is Market Lavington Museum Miscellany day. To be there, you’ll need to be at Market Lavington Community Hall for a 7.30 start.

The format for the evening is now familiar, based around themed talks by Rog, the curator. The themes this year include:

The Brick Business.

Victorian tile made at Market Lavington Brick Works

Hospital Week.

Fancy dress during a Market Lavington and Easterton Hospital Week Carnival in the 1930s. The venue is Fiddington House

People and Places.

Easterton Manor and some of the residents in the early twentieth century

The Jam Factory.

Jam packers at Samuel Moore Foods, Easterton in about 1990

Edwardian Music Hall.

Miss Florrie Forde entertains on an Edwardian phonograph which has been in Market Lavington or Easterton for 100 plus years

Royal Events.

101 years ago. Market Lavington people at an event to celebrate the Coronation of King George V in 1911.

Some shows like this have a break in the middle to allow the audience a leg stretch. Our break does that and more. The entertainment continues with our famed museum food, made by local people from recipe books we have in the museum.

Don’t miss it!
