Sheringham Museum




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.

Olive Edis - A Life in Focus

Open from June 6 until Sept 23 - normal museum hours

The Museum's 2018 Summer Exhibition - an in-depth view of the life of Olive Edis FRPS, Sheringham's pioneering photographer.
There have been a number of recent exhibitions of photographs by Olive Edis, and indeed our exhibition includes the travelling exhibition 'The Road to Ypres'. She was a great photographer - Fellowships of the Royal Photographic Society are not granted lightly - but there was much more to Ms Edis.
This exhibition highlights the person behind the camera: entrepreneur, adventurer, inventor, public speaker, music lover, at ease with people of every level in society and a caring family member. There are photographs, of course, but this exhibition is about much more.
During the sixteen-week course of this exhibition we will be providing a range of special events and workshops. Watch this space for up-to-date information
