We hope everyone is really enjoying the second of May’s two bank holiday weekends – and looking forward to half term and the final week of Plymouth’s first ever History Festival! This week kicks off the official launch of Mount Edgcumbe’s Heritage Lottery Funded ‘Metta Catharina’ exhibition and there’s a special family-friendly storytelling session inspired by it tomorrow (Monday 27). The Metta Catharina is a Danish wreck that foundered off the Cornish coast in 1786 and which was eventually discovered in 1973!
There are plenty more great events to follow as we work our way towards the end of May. If you’re thinking of booking on this week’s guided Three Towns Guided Bus Tours (28 and 30) there are limited places left. Bookings can be made through the Museum which will re-open at 10am on Tuesday morning. Also, please note that due to unforseen circumstances, the ‘Musical Merriment’ event scheduled to take place in the Elizabethan House on 28 will now be held at the Merchant’s House instead! Enjoy the rest of the weekend 🙂
