The Cube has landed

The Suffolk at Play Cube has reached its final destination – the Museum of East Anglian Life.

Since it was created in 2015, the Cube has been exhibited in museums, schools and libraries across Suffolk and has been seen by over 11,000 people.

This photo won’t do much to boost those figures – it was a bit dull the day I took these – but it does show the Cube, flanked by the special Suffolk Artlink banners, in the Domestic Life building at the Museum.

Time for the Cube to move on

So, it’s goodbye to Cedars Park Community Primary school …


and it’s ‘hello’ to Stowmarket Library, where the Cube will be on display until the end of July, when it will move on to the Museum of East Anglian Life.

To celebrate the Cube’s arrival at the Library, Caitlin Howells will be running a craft activity there on SUNDAY, 3RD JULY from 10:30am to 12 noon. More activities with Caitlin, Dean and Emma will take place at the Museum of East Anglian Life during August – more details to follow in the next week or so.

The Big Barn at MEAL

This is it, folks – the venue for our Grand Celebration on Saturday, 10th September.

We are inviting guests to come along at 1pm – that will give them time to visit Abbot’s Hall and the Walled Garden, the Domestic Life Building (where the Cube will be exhibited) and the gypsy caravans, before we show the animations at 2.30 – followed by tea, cake and possibly a few games, at 3 o’clock. The event will finish around 4 o’clock and the Museum closes at 4.30.

I will be contacting everyone over the next few weeks, but please do keep the date – I’ll be in touch soon.
