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.

The museum is now closed for normal visits until late February or early March 2018. However some special events are coming up - watch this space!

October 31 Winter Season!

During our winter season we welcome school educational visits and we open for holiday periods and several special events.
We're still busy behind the scenes, though, refreshing displays and preparing for our big exhibition next year, when we host a multi-faceted exhibition on the life of Olive Edis, pioneering international photographer and long-term Sheringham resident.

Viking Festival

Feb 10, all day at the Museum and around town

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.”
