This month, the Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre launches a new group for adults with additional needs.

The best part? It’s completely free!

Sessions will start on Wednesday 27th March from 10am to 12pm every week. There’s no need to book beforehand, just drop by and say hello.

With funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, the group will learn all about the museum. They will discuss its exhibitions and the work that goes into bringing North East Lincolnshire’s history to life.

Members of the Heritage Centre team will host the sessions, with some featuring guest speakers such as local artists. Speakers will use their expertise to engage with participants and lead sessions on their field.

The group will also have the opportunity to use objects in the collection to learn about the history of their area. As well, they’ll be able to discuss accessibility and what they would like to see more of in museums.

The work that comes out of these sessions will be transformed into an exhibition at the Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre next year.

This new group is based on a similar project run at the North Lincolnshire Museum called ‘Museum Makers’, who had their first exhibition last year.
