In light of the latest government advice, and in order to protect volunteers and visitors alike, the Trustees have taken the decision to cancel all public activities associated with the Fairlynch Museum until further notice.
Please note that the following events have been cancelled or postponed:
In addition, the Museum will not open as planned on 10th April, but will remain closed until such times as the advice from the Government changes, and Trustees feel that it is safe to open the Museum to visitors.
Keeping the Museum closed will not reduce our running costs – last year it cost about £37 a day just to keep it going. With this delay in opening for the 2020 Season, we will be facing a reduction in our anticipated income from entry fees and visitor donations, so any additional donations would be most gratefully received. You can do this by cheque made payable to ‘Budleigh Salterton Arts Centre & Museum’ or through the Big Give button below.
Trustees will be reviewing the situation on a regular basis and we will keep the website updated about any changes.
In the meantime, we hope that you stay safe and well, and look forward to welcoming you to the Museum as soon as feasible.
