Seventeen year old Joe Bush got a high school assignment to make a video reproduction. He chose history as a theme and tucked it all into two minutes. Take pictures from the internet, add the track Mind Heist by Zack Hemsey (from the movie Interception) and then you get something like this.
The mini museum will be showcasing three aspects of Neath’s history with exhibits and information panels on Roman Neath, Neath Abbey and Neath Castle provided by the Neath Antiquarians, West Glamorgan Archives and NPT Museum service. Neath Pop-Up Museum Poster
Morning sessions at the museum will be open to schools only and will re-open from 1:30 to 4:30 to the public with myself and representatives from the Neath Antiquarian Society on hand to answer any questions and explain the exhibits. From Tuesday to Saturday local author, historian and antiquarian Robert King will be taking guided walks of Neath Castle. Tours begin at the Victoria Gardens Community building and cost £3 per person. Please see the poster for tour times and further information.
This project would not have been possible without the support of Neath Town Council, the Neath Antiquarians, West Glamorgan Archives and the Victoria Gardens Community building staff.
Let’s hope that this is the first of many museum showcase weeks. I look forward to seeing you next week.
