Radio Nottingham’s Big Day Out

Radio Nottingham’s Big Day Out

24/04/19 - How much can you pack in to one day? As part of Radio Nottingham’s Big Day Out on Sunday 28th April, the D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum will be opening their doors for FREE.

Enjoy a taster tour of the terraced house on Victoria Street in Eastwood with costumed guides and see a demonstration of the Victorian Wash-house.  There is no need to book for this event, just turn up at the museum between 11am and 3.40pm.

Cultural Services Manager, Alex Khan said, “This is a great day out for the family which we are proud to be part of again in 2019”

You can also see the museum’s new exhibition, ‘Discover A Life Without Limits’. Prepare to be surprised and inspired by a life that was anything but ordinary.  As part of the exhibition visitors are able to vote on which element they would like to see more of, choosing from the categories of ‘Sex’, ‘Travel’, ‘Religion’ and ‘Social Circles’, to name but a few. The outcome of the voting will inform future exhibition programmes. ‘Discover a Life Without Limits’ will run until 26th July 2019.

The Big Day Out is a great celebration of local heritage with many sites and attractions taking part.  Go to Radio Nottingham’s website (Opens in a New Window) to see the full list and to plan your day.
