Event: Celebrating Sheringham's New Museum
Designed by Feilden and Mawson, the Sheringham Museum opens this year. It has a varied collection in which the sea, lifeboats and the holiday business feature prominently. The Art Fund has helped purchase railway posters by Thomas Armes and seascapes by Mick Bensley and these will have pride of place on the walls. Other displays cover boatbuilding, the lifeboats that served at Sheringham, a typical former Sheringham street scene and Olive Edis, the photographer.
The evening will include supper which will be followed by entertainment from the Sheringham Shantymen, who are melodious, witty and engaging -a true reflection of sea-faring Norfolk.
