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.

Summer Holiday Family Art Workshops

Art workshop

Get creative with us every Wednesday morning in the school holidays. From 10am until 11.30 am each Wednesday we will be taking inspiration from our coastal location and local history to investigate different artists and techniques. Have a go at screen printing, mark making, collage and much more!

Thank you to all those of you who visited us for Art at the Mo last week. We explored the galleries, taking inspiration from our wonderful objects to develop sketches and turn them into fantastic original badges.

Our next session on Wednesday 16th will explore printing and there will be the opportunity to create a screen print with local artist Colin Seal.

For further information and to book your place, please contact our Learning Officer (telephone no. at the bottom of the page). Normal admission charges to the Museum apply, but the workshops are free. Children must be accompanied by a parent / carer

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.
