Dorking Museum in 2020

2020 has been a very challenging year.

Much of what we had planned, including two major exhibitions, a programme of school holiday family activities, and a series of events planned to mark the 400th anniversary of the voyage of the Mayflower, has had to be curtailed or totally cancelled.

We were unable to run cave tours at all this season, though we did manage to re-launch the walks programme in the later part of the year.

We look forward to welcoming everyone back to the Museum next year.

The Museum committee would like to thank everyone who has contributed and to wish all our volunteers, members, supporters and audiences a “Happy New Year”.
