We have today received £7900 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), part of which will fund two exciting new exhibitions in the Corwen Museum, on the legend of Owain Glyndwr and Corwen – the Crossroads of North Wales.  These displays will tell the story of Corwen and the Edeyrnion area from prehistoric times to the present day, through the eyes and ears of travellers and local people.  The work will be done by volunteers from the local community .and we want to involve as many people as possible in this unique project.

The project will enable local people and visitors to the area alike, to understand how and why the area evolved over time.  It is hoped that the local schools will become involved, giving the children a better understanding of the place where they live.  A Community Memory Board will show photographs of Corwen Life and People since the Second World War, with space for individuals to record their thoughts and memories.  We will also start building a Resource Centre so that photographs and documents from the past and present can be stored for use both now and in the future.   We want the community to become involved in volunteering at the Museum, in research, display building and in stewarding.  We also want the loan or donation of old photographs, documents and artefacts relating to Edeyrnion, to display.  If you think you can help in any way please get in touch, we would love to hear from you.

The Museum is closed at present whilst the work is completed, but will re-open on Saturday 18th February.  We are holding a Community Open Day on Saturday 25th February from 10.30 am to 7.00 pm and hope that you will be able to join us.
