Exciting new chance to experience a fascinating trip through the Holly Hedge archives!
Our great new friends at Weston Museum are putting on a special exhibition in their community gallery to celebrate our 30 years of rescuing and rehoming. Along with photos and newspaper cuttings of particularly poignant rescue stories, there’s also the chance to explore their interactive touch screen to discover the history of Holly Hedge right up to the present day.
With our 30th anniversary officially running until March, the last day of the exhibition is Saturday 4th March. The world-renowned Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition, on loan from the Natural History Museum in London, is also on display and will be on show there until 8th February. And if all this wasn’t enough, the Dismaland Pinwheel has even been loaned to the museum by the artist Banksy!
