We are inviting visitors to discover and explore the Museum of the Manchester Regiment and Setantii at the 3rd annual DISCOVERY DAY, taking place this year on Wednesday 5 August 2009.   

There will be First World War Tommies, Wellington’s Foot Soldiers and Roman Centurions to meet; military vehicles to see and fun workshops to join in with too.  All activities are FREE.

The event will run from 11am – 3pm at the Museum of the Manchester Regiment and Setantii, both located in Ashton Town Hall, Ashton-under-Lyne.  Everyone is welcome and the activities are suitable for all ages.  There’s no need to book for any of the activities.

Just to say that the Family Discovery Day at the  Manchesteer Regiment Museum was a fantastic success with over 2,600 visitors of all ages - including our own Mons Star.  Garry Smith, the curator, has sent some of the photographs of the day which hopefuly lwill reproduce here.
