Events at the Museum

The museum organises and presents a range of events throughout the year, generally cultural in nature. Our aim is to provide a series of enjoyable experiences for our community.

These events can cover quite a range of activities, but they all relate in some way to the life and culture of Sheringham and its surrounds.

Music at The Mo - Special Evening in November

The Trustees of Sheringham Museum and Music at The Mo are delighted to announce a very special event "An Evening with Martin Simpson" on Friday 10 November 2017.

Martin Simpson

"There is no doubt that after 45 years as a professional musician Martin is, right now, better than ever. Widely acknowledged as one of the finest acoustic and slide guitar players in the world, his interpretations of traditional songs are masterpieces of storytelling. His solo shows are intense, eclectic, spellbinding and deeply moving".

The doors will open at 6.45 pm and the concert will run from 7.30pm until 10pm. You can purchase tickets on line by using the form below.

A limited number of tickets are available to buy in advance at our reception desk at Sheringham Museum. See below for our opening times.
