WARM WELCOME TO 2022

A warm welcome to 2022 and an equally warm welcome to our new Museum Director, Dr Katharine Walker.


The Friends’ committee has just had its first meeting of the year, and to shake off the Covid times and this current dreary weather, we have finalised our 2022 events to cheer everyone up! The events we are organising are set out below.


We much appreciated your positive feedback following the 2021 AGM and evening Christmas Drinks and were also delighted to welcome part of the choir from Cirencester Parish Church, who entertained us with some lovely carols. We hope to repeat the AGM/Christmas Drinks this year and have set a provisional date of Thursday, 8 December.


We look forward to the Spring Drinks on 7 April with lots of old, new and current Friends! Please sign up to come along; it will be great to see you!


Warmest wishes

Kathryn Allison
Chair of the Friends of Corinium Museum

SPRING DRINKS - 7th April

We look to celebrate springtime with our Spring Drinks at Corinium Museum on 7th April, open to all Friends and friends of Friends! The event is free to members but there is a charge for guests.


We would love to increase our membership both from a revenue, as well as a social, point of view, so please do encourage your friends to come along! It will also be an excellent opportunity for you all to meet Dr Katharine Walker.

Ticket details have been sent to Friends by email.
