Looking forward to 2021

Looking forward to 2021

We are only a few weeks into 2021 but already a lot has happened!

January is usually a little quiet for us, but the news of another national lockdown has meant we have been super busy at the museum. All of the plans that we had in place before this Christmas have had to be pushed back or adapted and we have had many meetings working out how best to rise to the new challenges we face.

However, we are excited for the new year and we won’t let the pandemic stop us from sharing our enthusiasm and passion for Selly Manor and its history. Yes, we have had to change a lot of our plans for the first quarter of the year but this has also led to some interesting new opportunities. The team have thrown ourselves into creating video resources to support schools and home learning; already we have written scripts, filmed and edited videos. We have also planned our events programme for 2021 (Covid-permitting), with a mixture of old favourites and fresh exciting events. Social distancing might mean that we have to do things a little differently but we promise you will have a wonderful time regardless. The team have also already been on quite a few different training courses, making the most of the museum not being open to the public. 

Our team is looking forward to 2021 and know that despite the challenges it is sure to bring, we will continue connecting with our community both digitally and in person once we are allowed. We can’t wait to see you all soon, but until then take care of yourselves and stay safe.

Love,

The Selly Manor Team x
