During the October half term The British Music Experience really does have something for everyone from tots to teens all the way up to granny.

October Half Term Colouring In Competition: All Day in the

Film Night At The Museum: 25th October. 5.30pm.

Come join us after hours this half term for Film Night at the Museum where we will be showing the Jack Black classic, The School of Rock.

Recently fired from his rock band, Dewey Finn takes a job as a 4th grade teacher at an uptight private school where his free-spirited attitude and shenanigans cause the students to discover other sides of themselves. Dewey forms a rock band with his students to win a Battle of the Bands, help get himself out of debt and re-establish himself as a musician...

Our café will be serving cinema style snacks and drinks. Fun for all the family.

Film Night tickets: £6 (£5 for Resident Pass holders). Children under five go FREE!

The British Music Experience tells the story of British Music through costumes, instruments, performance and memorabilia. Whatever age you are, and whatever you are into, there is something here for you.

The collection boasts outfits worn by artists such as Freddie Mercury and Dusty Springfield, to the Spice Girls, Adam Ant and X Factor finalists and musical instruments played by some of the world’s most renowned artists from Noel Gallagher to the Sex Pistols. There are hand written song lyrics from Adele, the original statues from the Brits and the Apple Corp front door from Saville Row.

Visitors are also able to get involved too. You can learn a musical instrument with the best music equipment available, from drum kits to keyboards.
