The Friends held a successful Open Museum Event on Saturday 21st November with the aim of raising awareness of this Pendle gem.

Frank Janet and Gillian guided over 40 visitors, some from as far away as London, round the museum and were available to answer their many questions.

With Lancashire Day approaching  (27th Nov) the Real Lancashire Society were there to promote the County Palatine whilst the Leeds and Liverpool Society, the Earby History Society and the Burnley and Pendle Branch of the Family History Society were on hand to  highlight  local groups, along with the Burnley and District Branch of the U3A.

Excellent entertainment was provided by the “Palatine Fiddlers “from Rossendale and Ron and Sally, known as the “Tin Pot Poets,” from Helmshore.

Lancashire themed food was available throughout the day in the Centre cafe and Barn.

It was great to see so many enthusiastic faces, hopefully spreading the word of this wonderful Pendle destination.
