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.

Special Concert Event

In September we are hosting a special musical event - An Evening with Steve Tilston. You can find a lot more information about this event - and purchase tickets if you wish - by clicking HERE.

Open for February Half term 10-18th and for the Season

We re-open during February half-term for a week of events linked to Sheringham Carnival's Viking Festival - please see individual listings below.

Land & Sea Exhibition by Rachel Hutchins

10/2/18 -18/2/18 and from 24/3/18 - 15/4/18

Rachel Hutchins died in March 2015 from lung cancer, aged just 30. Her life was sadly all too short, but Rachel had built up a diverse range of work which was highly influenced by her love of the Norfolk landscape and communities.
‘Land and Sea’ will focus on the connection between the rich history and landscape of the North Norfolk coast and Rachel’s art works. This will include screen prints, scraper boards, ceramics, designs for wallpapers, private commissions and other originals. Some of which have never been seen in public before.
The exhibition will be open for the public to view from February 10th to 18th and from March 28th to April 15th. It will be open for school visits from February 10th through to April 15th.

We are delighted to welcome Jess Morgan back to these shores after playing to a packed audience in 2017.
"Jess Morgan is a songwriter’s songwriter. Her latest album is a tumbler of unfancied, gutsy song. Her melodies will ring in your ears for days and her stories will play on your heart long after that.

Jess will release new material in 2018 and will support A-ha! on their MTV Unplugged tour including dates at Spektrum in Oslo and the O2 Arena in London – the biggest shows to date for this meticulously hands-on artist artist, who makes her own playable 7″ records at home in her kitchen. The 405 called her “a true DIY artist in her element. Seriously, she does it all.”
