COVID 19 - 2020 Season at

Forge Mill Needle Museum

and Bordesley Abbey Visitor Centre

Following Government guidelines, the Museum was closed from March 20th until further notice. This meant that all events, activities and exhibitions were cancelled from that date. This meant that our annual Heritage Day which was planned for the 13th September was also cancelled. However, the National Heritage Open Days organisations recommended that, venues, if they were able should create a virtual event. This we did, and created a website with virtual tours of the Abbey Site and the Needle Museum, slide shows of previous events and more…. The website was be online for the Heritage Open Days festival season from 11th to 20th of September and, we decided to keep it as it gives a good overview of the site. The link can be found at our Virtual Site tab.
