Spring at the Museum

‘Ways of Seeing’ imagines the stories behind two of the Museum’s objects

Wimborne Community Theatre & Millstream Theatre, in partnership with the Museum of East Dorset, are proud to present ‘Ways of Seeing’. This Interactive, multi-media show will take place at the award-winning Museum of East Dorset on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th March.

Ways of Seeing’ imagines the stories behind two of the Museum’s objects: the fragmented Roman fresco from the excavated Tarrant Hinton villa, depicting the myth of Narcissus and Echo, and the Victorian camera, used by Job Pottle (19th century) and Jimmy Jewell (20th century) in their Eastbrook Photographic studio to capture images in Wimborne Town Centre.

‘Ways of Seeing’ is a joint production by Wimborne Community Theatre (WCT) and Millstream Theatre, who perform original, site-specific theatre, bringing to life East Dorset stories often hidden or overlooked, in a way, that brings together past, present and future – as the Museum does.

Tickets for this unique event are £10 (£8 concessions) and can be purchased at museumofeastdorset.co.uk.

The museum will also be hosting a number of exciting workshops and events over the coming months, including Family History workshop, Hand Painted Polymer Clay Jewellery workshop, Felted Toadstool workshop as well as the ever popular Little Explorer children’s craft event in April.

The museum, garden and Tea Room is open from 10am to 4pm, Monday to Saturday.
