‘Echoes of the Past’, 2019 was commissioned by Emma Ayling, Director of the Priest’s House Museum and Gardens (PHM), to produce two commemorative events: one for the closing of the museum in June 2019 (Echoes of the Past), and one for the opening celebrations in 2020.
‘The Revival Project marks the next phase of the history of this Grade II* listed building, which has been standing in Wimborne for over 500 years, and ties in with the vision of the Museum’s founder Hilda Coles ‘…A ‘live’ museum – a centre of education and culture, continually changing its displays and appealing to children as well as adults’.
“Our Revival Project will transform the access and facilities of the museum, provide some fantastic opportunities for volunteers in the coming months, and ensure the area’s heritage is shared more widely than ever before.”
The Revival Project is being made possible by the National Lottery Heritage Fund with partnership funding from charitable Trusts and Foundations, local councils and businesses and the community. Emma Ayling
