Museum by Candlelight
Join The Fan Museum in heralding the festive season with the return of a yuletide fan favourite.
Curator in Residence
Usually taking place on the afternoon of the penultimate Saturday of each month, join the Museum’s expert curatorial staff for a range of free-to-attend talks highlighting objects featured within the permanent display and temporary exhibitions.
Fan Making Workshops
We hold regular fan making workshops on the first Saturday afternoon of each month from February until December. These sessions are conducted by an experienced tutor who will not only provide expert guidance, but also a wealth of knowledge about the history and craft of fans.
Please note workshop spaces are extremely limited and in high demand; we advise booking early to avoid disappointment.
