Live Well workshops

There is a related programme of workshops, during the open afternoons in two of our museums, which is organised by the Big Lottery funded Live Well project. (It was formerly called Making Connections.)

This project is to encourage older people who don’t normally get the chance to visit museums, whether because of some kind of disadvantage (such as health) or barrier (such as cost).

Live Well workshops have limited numbers and are usually required to prioritise new visitors.

If you would like to take part contact one of the Live Well workers listed below.
