Curator Andrea Hawkins has been researching a new project, by exploring the Northumberland archives held at Woodhorn Museum.
The project looks at the role of working men’s clubs and will establish a partnership with a WMC as a new arts venue at the heart of the community.
Andrea said, 'The archives offer up amazing glimpses into Northumbrian lives. It's going to be a rich resource when we're developing an arts project that celebrates working men's clubs and the important role they play in developing a cultural heritage for communities.'
Andrea adds, ‘I’ve already met with some representatives from clubs in South East Northumberland and the project has the thumbs up!’
