@ the Town Museum this month
We are currently displaying Christmas past in Ashbourne on three focus boards, showcasing 1975, 1978, and 1986. Pop in and re-live some memories.
There is still a chance until January to meander through old photographs and original corsetry spanning the history of the Stay Works and Chil-Tex 1855-2004 - one of Ashbourne's past employers. Younger residents and newcomers will be surprised to find out what used to happen where Sainsburys is now, and the corset display is a fascinating reminder of what fashionable ladies used to put up with.
Also continuing is the "Our Town" exhibition, showing the community ceramics project from the 2022 Ashbourne Festival - everything on display was made by local residents. Make sure you don't miss it.
The QEGS exhibition also runs for another few weeks, with an exhibition of rare school ephemera, featuring old photographs, report books, uniforms & many unique items.
