Seniors Open Day 2015 – A Report

30th March 2015 Jacob Moss1,582 views

On Monday 23 March 2015, The Fan Museum opened its doors for a special event aimed at audiences aged 55+.

The day was well-attended by visitors from the local boroughs of Greenwich and Lewisham who enjoyed a variety of free taster activities such as fan making, short talks and refreshments.  The project, a Museum of London grant-funded initiative, gained much from the support of Lewisham Pensioners Forum. Thank you to everyone, including our lovely volunteers, who turned out and made the day such a memorable occasion.
