A most fruitful tree: 350 years of Bunyan Meeting opened on 2 August at the John Bunyan Museum.
The exhibitions at the John Bunyan Museum will showcase artwork inspired by highlights in the museum’s collections, and will present a film of Faith Stories from the Bunyan Meeting congregation.
Nicola Sherhod, Museum Curator says “The displays and artwork will explore the history and stories of Bunyan Meeting, growing from seeds of 17th Century dissent, putting down roots in an orchard on Mill Street, to the Church of today.”
The exhibition is part of the Arts Council England National Lottery Heritage funded Bunyan Anniversaries Project 2021-22, which is also supported by Bunyan Meeting, volunteers and the Friends of the John Bunyan Museum.
During the Summer holidays there will also be Family craft activities running every Thursday in August, £2 per child over 4 years old. Booking isn’t required.
The museum is open Tuesday to Saturday 11am-4pm. A most fruitful tree: 350 years of Bunyan Meeting runs from 2 August to 27 August. Entry to the museum is free.
