Events & Activities

PLEASE NOTE

Following a request from the Museum in response to the Covid emergency, the Friends’ Committee agreed that meeting will be held on Tuesday afternoons during the 2021/22 season. Depending on the response of members, this change may become permanent.    
The reason behind the change is that the Museum is closed to the public on Tuesdays, and only those attending the meetings will be admitted. The door would be manned by a member of the museum staff.

Meetings will start at 2pm at Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery on TUESDAY afternoons
