UP COMING EVENT

AUGUST

 

Dave the moneyer

Dave the moneyer is staying with us throughout August and has set up camp in the West Ward. He produces authentic-style hammered coins, starting with Greek through to Celtic (650BC), all the way to the English Civil War (1660AD) and everything in between.

Dave travels around Britain and further afield, and brings to life the manufacture of coins and jewellery from your chosen era.

If you have any old coins that you would like Dave to look at bring them along, he has a wealth of experience that he would love to share with you.
