Here is this week’s summary of Cambridgeshire museum news:
By far the most important development is the re-opening last weekend of the Norris Museum in St Ives, following their HLF-funded redevelopment. It was a privilege for me to be invited last Friday to see the impressive new displays and to watch an excellent film about the Museum and the redevelopment. May I suggest that, it you haven’t already visited, you do so as soon as you can? For details go to http://norrismuseum.org.uk/.
We also have great cause to celebrate that Ely Museum has almost reached its fundraising target for acquiring the fabulous Bronze Age torc from Cambridgeshire. For details see http://www.cambridge-news.co.uk/news/local-news/british-museum-gold-torc-ely-13353495 .
The Cromwell Museum is advertising for an interim Curator, closing date 14 August (see attached details).
Kettle’s Yard is also recruiting staff. I am aware of advertisements for Assistant to the Director at
http://www.jobs.cam.ac.uk/job/14544/, Curatorial Assistant at http://www.jobs.cam.ac.uk/job/14493/ and Venue Hire and Events Coordinator at http://www.jobs.cam.ac.uk/job/14503/ closing dates 29 August, 23 August and 5 September respectively.
Finally I attach the latest regional newsletter of the British Association of Friends of Museums.
