Visitors can enjoy an extensive selection of re-enactments and living history, music and crafts as well as a market which will include demonstrations of traditional crafts. At 2pm on both days there will also be a celebration parade through St Ives town centre, which will be a showcase of historical heroes banners, which have been designed by children in the town. The reopening follows a £1.4 million redevelopment that was made possible after the Huntingdonshires Heritage project received a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). The reopening of the museum marks a momentous milestone for the project, said Hannah Vandridge from the museum. There will be an opportunity to meet characters from throughout the ages, make a unique re-opening t-shirt with professional artist Ricki Outis, and get crafty with some activities on The Waits. Robyn Llewellyn, head of HLF East of England, said: Huntingdonshires heritage now has a secure future and people of all ages now have the opportunity to share in the stories of their communities. We look forward to celebrating the re-opening The Norris Museum is situated in the centre of the town and looks after 30,000 items, from 160-million-year-old Jurassic fossils to beautiful flint tools from the Stone Age, to Roman pottery and figurines to curios of Victorian collectors. The redevelopment project has seen the addition of a new wing, a larger, more accessible gallery space and improved facilities. Once re-opened, the museum plans to continue its school learning sessions, family event days, under-fives Rhyme Time sessions, workshops and community clubs.
