A collage of three photos. These are of two people using a camera, two children dressed up in bee keeping costumes and a person doing some creative writing. There is some text which reads "Weekly Roundup 14th to 20th August 2023."

It’s been another exciting week at The Devil’s Porridge Museum with creative writing and a Bee Celebration! Read more in our Weekly Roundup below!

Today we had a scriptwritting workshop for young people aged 16 – 26 years old with Haltwhistle Films. We had a very interesting workshop with object handling and we even had chance to film draft videos for our upcoming hologram. Take a look at some of the photos of what happened below.

Wedenesday was a busy day with not one, but two group visits. It was brilliant to have them visiting The Devil’s Porridge Museum. Learn more about group visits here>

On Saturday we had a Bee Celebration and we think it went bee-illiantly, even if we do say so ourselves! There was lots of fun activities from honey taste testing, trying on beekeeper suits, beautiful wax art demonstrations, candle making and more! A huge thank you to everyone who helped out with this event and all those who came along.

We got lots of great photos! Have a look below.


Some of the people who came along also helped us start to fill a time capsule with letters, drawings and messages for future generations.The capsule is set to be opened in 2050, and the UK is aiming to achieve net zero CO2 emissions by then. Who knows how much life will have changed by the time it gets opened!

Our gardening club was also a hive of activity (I promise that’s the last bee related pun in this Weekly Roundup). You can see some of what they have been growing in the photos below. Learn more about this here>

The Socotia Crafters came to set up in The Devil’s Porridge Museum today. They sell a lovely selection of homemade, local, produce, gifts and arts and crafts. The Socotia Crafters will be at The Devil’s Porrridge Museum until Sunday 3rd September. Come along and treat yourself or someone else! Perhaps you could even make a start on your Christmas shopping while they’re at The Devil’s Porridge Museum (or is that still too soon?).

Thanks for joining us for this week’s Weekly Roundup! Come back again next week to keep up to date with what’s been happening. In the meantime see what’s comming up at the museum by checking out our events page here> You can read last week’s Weekly Roundup here>

We’ll see you again next week!
