Collections News: New Donations

Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery continuously receives donations for the collection. Objects being donated are often from people living in Nuneaton and Bedworth and always relate to the borough in some way. We shall regularly post new acquisitions on our blog so that you can see what objects are being stored and displayed at your local museum. Here are the newest acquisitions…

A programme produced for the performance of ‘Carry On’ in the Music Hall, New Co-operative Hall, Queens Road, Nuneaton. The performance took place on Good Friday, April 15th 1949. The event was organised by the National Union of Railwaymen and the Associated Society Locomotive Engineers and Firemen Joint Orphan Fund.

Doll of a bird made from bark cloth in a craft centre in Southwest Uganda in the 1960s. The doll was collected by a Nuneaton teacher, Mr Goddard, on a visit to Uganda during the 1960s to 1970s. Mr Goddard taught in Uganda for two years and then went to teach in Ethiopia for three years for the British Council. Mr Goddard grew up in Nuneaton and attended Attleborough County Primary School and then King Edward VI School.

About janineclarefox

My name is Janine Fox and I am Assistant Museum Officer at Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery. My role is to care and document the museum collection. Working within a small team means I also help install exhibitions, carry out research for enquiries and assist with larger museum projects. What inspires me? Apart from tea and chocolate, I would say travel, photography, art and anything old with a story to tell! It will come as no surprise that I love my job; I work with objects, ensuring that they are looked after, made available for the public and that their stories are recorded for perpetuity.
