Elton John's Glasses Community Open Day

Next Sunday on the 10th September we will be opening our doors for our Elton John’s Glasses Community Open Day!

Join us from 12pm-5pm for an afternoon full of memories of Watford in the 80s and 90s, from the 1984 cup final to memories of the High Street.

12pm-5pm, Foyer: free open exhibition, including objects and photos on loan from the museum

12pm-5pm, Hospitality Room: University of Hertfordshire Heritage Hub interactive booth

12pm-1.30pm, 3pm-5pm, Studio: Podcast recording sessions

Our community sharing in the auditorium is free but must be booked for. Free backstage tours will also be given throughout the day at 12:30pm, 3.15pm, and 4.15pm, with 4.15pm as an access friendly tour. Be sure to book for these in advance through our box office on 01923 225671.
