 Hidden Histories – a tale of witches, windmills and Mrs Whigham!


Nationally acclaimed Hallaton village museum, is celebrating its 40th anniversary with the launch of a new summer exhibition for 2018.  Entitled  ‘Hidden Histories’,  the exhibition will reveal unexpected tales of witches, windmills and the infamous Mrs Whigham, founder of the museum in 1978.


Hallaton Museum’s 2018 exhibition organisers have worked closely with surrounding villages to unearth their most tantalising tales.  In addition to the exhibits there will be plenty of interactive activities, including bike trails, of varying lengths, following the stories around the featured villages.


Located at the heart of picturesque Hallaton in ‘The Tin Tab’ building behind St Michael’s and All Angels Church in Hallaton, the museum won national recognition and an award from the prestigious National Heritage and Media Awards 2017 for its World War I exhibition in 2016. The 2018 summer exhibition is from Saturday 5 May til Sunday 7 October and will be open every weekend and bank holiday, 2.30 - 5.00pm. Entry is free although donations are gratefully accepted, with all monies going to the museum and future exhibitions.   For more information please visit:
