Magdalen Street's First Pop-Up Museum

13th October, 11-5 at Epic Studios, 112-114 Magdalen Street.
It’s like a pop-up museum…LivingNorwich will be taking over the cafe at Epic with digital and traditional displays of old Magdalen Street and lots of ways to get involved and inspired:
A 1-day-only chance to view a real life John Thirtle painting from Gallery 1821. Thirtle was one of the famous Norwich School of Artists who had a framing workshop on Magdalen Street at No. 26 (Now the Big C charity shop).
A chance to locate yourself in the story of Magdalen Street by making your very own blue plaque.
Visit our onsite historians, who will be on hand to help you research your own past and engage with the exhibitions.
And finally, make sure kids to bring your poorly dolls and teddies to our Doll Doctor in memory of the Doll’s Hospital once at no.62.
With thanks to the Plunkett family via Heart who have supplied photos, to theRecords Office who have supplied copies of some fascinating documents, to Art 1821 for the amazing chance to have a real, live Thirtle painting and to Epic for having us. WE love MAC.
