Harborough Goes Back in Time

The Museum reopens amidst historical celebrations.

Moly & Nick BarrattTo celebrate the re-opening of the Harborough Museum and the display of the Hallaton Treasure, a number of events took place across town.

There were re-enactments from First World War, Civil war and Roman groups, as well as an audience with 'The Victorian Lady' in the Harborough Theatre and Dr Nick Barratt was on hand to talk about the BBC programme Who Do You Think You Are?

The museum itself had over 2,000 visitors. Zara Matthews, Keeper of the Museum, was delighted with the turnout and described the day as "Just the beginning" for the museum and Harborough.

HFMs Moley, Simon, Nick & djbraine were on hand.
