Happy Birthday Dr Who

Ripon Museum Trust has spent the summer restoring the inside of their replica 1950’s Scarborough Police Box and it will be free to visit on Saturday 23 November from 1pm – 4.30pm on ‘World Doctor Who Day’.

 

“The inside has been restored so that visitors to the Prison and Police Museum can understand what Police boxes were for and why they were needed “said Sue Dalton Head of Museums for Ripon Museum Trust. “We have also had a bit of fun with this display and included a interactive period telephone and blue flashing light so that visitors can experience the full effects”

 

All three of the Trust museums will be open and free for the day as part of Ripon Christmas Lights celebrations

 

Visitors can see the Workhouse decorated for Christmas as recorded in the workhouse records of 1892.

The workhouse will host a ‘pop up’ Christmas café will be open throughout the day for tasty homemade cakes and refreshments. Visitors can enjoy rag rugging demonstrations and then have a go themselves guided by our costumed volunteers.

 

At the Courthouse there will be a ‘pop up’ Christmas shop from 1pm until 4.30pm
