Special Displays

Its Behind You!!!

Pantomimes traditionally opened on Boxing Day, 26 December, which is why we associate them with the festive season. Sadly this year many performances have had to be cancelled, but hopefully this display will bring back fond memories of panto’s past.

Costume Display: Seeing Red

It may be grey outside but autumn leaves and Santa’s suit bring a splash of red to the winter season. Red has many meanings. It is associated with power and the conflicting traits of love and war, danger and desire. Some of these themes can be seen in the costume on display.
