Our 2016 exhibition 'Wartime Advances, Peacetime Applications' has come to an end. We are already thinking about next year's exhibition. 2017 will mark some notable anniversaries, especially the 50th anniversary of the introduction of colour TV and the start of Radios 1, 2, 3 and 4.
We'd welcome new exhibition guides! If you'd like to give it a try, contact us via this link. Training given - It's very rewarding and good fun!
VISIT BY AIR CADETS
Two groups of Air Cadets from Grangemouth were welcomed to the Museum in October. After being introduced to the various sections of the Museum, including the 'Y' Service display, Radio Room, early communications equipment and the WW1 trench, they spent time discovering and trying out old methods of communication. As you can see from the second photo, they were very impressed with trench!!!
There are more lectures in the pipeline - watch this space!

Dave Gavine receiving his vote of thanks from David Brown, following this year's Harry Matthews lecture on The Herschel Family. Everyone learned facts that they didn't already know about this great man and his gifted family.
Two outside organisations held events in the Museum during November. They were the Microwave Round Table and the Enthomusicology Society. See below:-
