We are delighted to say that an exhibition of artefacts from the museum is now on display at Bridport Arts Centre in West Dorset. The extensive loan is in collaboration with this year's 'From Page to Screen' Festival of films adapted for the screen. The festival, which shows both new releases and timeless classics, and is this year curated by Edith Bowman, begins on 27 April and you can find the programme here. The exhibition is now open at the Arts Centre in the Allsopp Gallery.

This year's theme is music and film and so our exhibition features displays on sheet music and soundtrack albums, as well as items related to the films being shown in the festival this year.
