Tiverton Museum of Mid Devon Life has opened its new temporary exhibition ‘Royal Celebrations past and present’ at the museum on Thursday 6 December.

The exhibition is filled with photographs of local celebrations for Coronations and Jubilees, from Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee in 1897 to the 2012 Jubilee. Earlier this year the museum asked local communities to take photos of their Jubilee celebrations and send in copies. We were delighted to get such a positive response, and have photos from Bickleigh, Black Dog, Coleford, Thorverton and Morchard Bishop on display.

The exhibition will run from 6-22 December.

Entry to this exhibition will cost £1 for adults and accompanying children are free.
