NAME CHANGE
At its first meeting of 2016 the Forum Committee agreed to a minor change to our name to emphasise the word FORUM. We wanted to make clear that we are not another history society but exist to help societies and organisations make the most of the heritage of County Durham.

Beamish Museum and The Bowes Museum are inviting Forum Members to a day of practical workshops aimed at supporting the use of collections as a resource for engagement and learning on Saturday 12 March, 10.30am - 3pm (buffet lunch provided). To find out more contact Emily Hope: emilyhope@beamish.org.uk
