Museum toasts the New Year

Christmas cakes to end the night

Rye Castle Museum held its traditional twelfth-night party for members on Saturday January 6. A packed East Street site saw tables groaning with food from around the world, including a Christmas tree made of cheese. The Rye Shakespeare Company entertained the crowds with seasonal excerpts including a scene from Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night and a song from former mayor John Breeds.

The East Street site is currently closed for the winter but Ypres Tower is open every day from 10:30am until 5pm.

The Museum has outlined its events for the first half of 2018. The first talk is by Geoffrey Mead on Resorting to the Coast – Sussex Seaside History. This will take place on Thursday February 8 at 7:30pm. Members pay £3 and visitors £4.

Membership of Rye Castle Museum costs £10 a year for a single person and £15 for two people at the same address.
