Our Forces Sweethearts exhibition will be finishing on Friday 3rd August so you only have two weeks left to catch it before it goes! The exhibition is open Monday to Friday 10.30am – 4.30pm and is open for the Late Night Art opening on Thursday 2nd August.
There is jewellery and knitwear which belonged to Marilyn Monroe as well as items belonging to other stars such as Rita Hayworth and Humphrey Bogart. There is also a reel of British Pathe films showing Forces Sweethearts such as Vera Lynn and Gracie Fields entertaining the troops.
Due to vistor requests we will soon have the knitting pattern for the Marilyn Monroe jumpers available to download from the website, so you’ll be able to knit your very own starlet jumper!
The next temporary exhibition will be a Summer Holidays exhibition which will open the following week. We’ll post more information about this exhibition closer to the time.
