Events and Exhibitions


New for 2022

Look out for the new activity area on the stage during school holidays, have a go at stamping your own tile patterns and create your own coat of arms.

Plus we have two new exhibition panels on the location of Dunster Port, and on the medieval and Victorian tiled flooring in St George’s Church.

Dunster Village Scenes – exhibition of paintings

Monday 9th May to Sunday 15th May
Dunster Memorial Hall meeting room
Opening times 11am to 3pm.

An exhibition of paintings by artists through the centuries, depicting Dunster Village scenes.

Robin Hewison, a long-time resident, has moved away and has gifted his considerable collection of wonderful paintings & drawings for the cultural benefit of Dunster residents and its visitors. Painted and drawn by various well known artists, they date from the mid-18th century to the early 20th century and are available to see for the first time as a collection.

Coming soon – Platinum Jubilee exhibition

To celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee we are going to install an exhibition of photographs and hopefully videos of the celebrations in Dunster of the Coronation and the Silver, Golden and Diamond Jubilees.

We only have a few photos – so we NEED YOUR HELP. Have you got any pictures or videos that you can share with us? If you have any scanned, please email to, if not please take them to the Museum or Jeni at Made in Dunster in West Street and we will scan and return them.

Please share with everybody you know who might have lived in Dunster over the last 70 years and may be able to help. Many thanks.
