Museums in Cambridgeshire News no. 101 (2 August 2017)

Dear colleague

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

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 .

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, Curatorial Assistant at and Venue Hire and Events Coordinator at 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.
