After the summer months the team thought they’d have a quiet September with a chance to catch up on lots of other jobs. Well…that didn’t happen! September has been absolutely bonkers but just as brilliant. At the start of the month we had some beautiful sunshine and warm spells which put us in good stead for the upcoming weeks. So many things happened during September that there is almost too much to write so we thought we’d break it down into points, so here goes;
- Schools started back and we’ve given lots of guided tours to children about Bournville, The Great Fire of London and The Tudors. We even had a school who travelled all the way from WALES to visit us!
- Our Heritage Manor went off site to give talks during the evenings.
- Our fabulous volunteer Gill was a finalist for the West Midlands Volunteer Awards and even though she didn’t win, she had a great time celebrating at Birmingham Hippodrome for the Awards Ceremony.
- We started to work on our spooky Halloween events.
- Had a meeting to discuss our 2020 events programme.
- Held our first Selly Manor Lates with the wonderfully talented Richard O’Brien.
- Our Santa’s Grotto tickets went on sale and our elves spent many hours taking your bookings.
- We took part in Bournville Heritage Open Day 2019 which saw us welcome over 1,500 people to the museum.
As you can see it’s been a pretty busy month for us but we’ve loved every second of it. As the colder weather starts to move in and as we start to plan for Christmas, the team are loving autumn and are looking forward to the winter- after all it will soon be Christmas. Check back next month to see how we’re getting on.
