We welcome non-members to all our events, visits, coffee mornings and talks.
Our visits have often been to historical places that are not normally open to the public eg's. Fursdon House & Downes House. However, over the last couple of years we have also had trips on Tiverton Canal on a horse drawn barge and sailed along Exeter ship canal to Exmouth. We went to Bristol to see the Staffordshire hoard of Anglo Saxon gold artefacts and visited to the Penzance Art Gallery.
The Box has invited the Friends to an introductory visit on 9th April (prior to the official opening on 16th May)
16th January 2020 (The last event run by the Friends.)
Terah Walkup, Fine Art Curator at the Box gave an enthusiastic talk to the Friends about what has been happening to the collections, whilst in storage and what can be expected in the Fine art and Decorative Art in the revamped gallery as well as developments in the Cottonian Collection. The Audience were left with great expectations and are looking forward to the visit on 9th April.
