Help Find the Lost Sheep at the D.H Lawrence Museum

Help Find the Lost Sheep at the D.H Lawrence Museum

12/07/2016 - Visitors are being urged to flock to Eastwood's D.H Lawrence Birthplace Museum this summer in the search for some missing sheep.

Around 30 hand-made crocheted sheep are on the loose in the garden at the Museum, on Victoria Street and at the Craft Workshop Area on Scargill Walk waiting to be found and given a new home.

The sheep have been made by local artist Elaine Thompson from the Wood Gallery and anyone who finds one is asked to register them on Facebook  

Anyone who registers their woolly new friend will be entered into a prize draw with a chance to win a free tour of the Birthplace Museum.

Sheep can also be purchased at The Wood Gallery with all proceeds donated to the Alzheimer's Society.

The search for the lost sheep is just one of a number of family friendly activities taking place at the Birthplace Museum over the summer, as well as a 'Find the Mice' trail, traditional toys and games and a fascinating handling collection.

The D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum is an award winning visitor attraction in Eastwood, Nottinghamshire (not far from junction 26 of the M1 and the IKEA retail park). It combines D.H. Lawrence's authentically recreated childhood home, with an exhibition space celebrating the author's life, work and humble beginnings. From here you can also explore the surrounding countryside, which inspired his work. 

The D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10.00am to 4.00pm.

For more information, please contact D.H. Lawrence Heritage on the details provided. 

Facilities include a charming gift shop, tea and coffee, wifi and a picnic area.
