What’s on in April 2017

New at the Museum!

Come and have a look at the recently acquired watercolour ‘The Newport Ship’ by David Jordan on display in the Museum entrance. The painting shows the Ship being hauled into a side inlet downstream from Newport’s castle. It has been created following extensive research and discussion with the Medieval Sip Project curator and other members of the project’s expert panel.
