The Museum of Lancashire reopened last Autumn after a major refurb and outreach officer Stephen Miller wants young people to guide its events and share their ideas.

He said: “We know that many young people are keen to know more about their history and heritage, and that’s why we’re setting up a new forum where they can bring their energy, ideas and enthusiasm.

“The aim is for young people to enjoy a unique opportunity to gain new skills, get a real museum experience and have a lot of fun.


“The forum will meet once a month in the MoL on Stanley Street, Preston. It will explore a variety of different topics related to the museum. There will be hands-on sessions with museum objects, fascinating behind the scenes tours and some great opportunities to develop new projects.

“However, it’s really all about the young people themselves, so they will help decide how the forum is run, how it looks and what it does.”

The first meeting will take place from 1pm to 3pm on Saturday 11th February.

For more information contact Stephen on or call 07557030533.
