Louth Museum will be hosting two special events in October, in celebration of the history and heritage of Louth and Lincolnshire.

On October 1 (Lincolnshire Day), museum volunteer Alex Keyes will be leading a walk around the town centre, featuring locations that can be seen on William Brown’s 1844 Panorama.

At the end of the walk, there will be chance to sample Lincolnshire plum bread, gingerbread and Skidbrooke apple juice.

The cost is £5 per person, including the refreshments and museum entrance. Booking is essential, and the walk will leave at 2pm.

On Thursday October 13, the museum is organising a special quiz night, which will raise funds to help the volunteers conserve and improve its exhibits.

The fundraising evening will be held at My Father’s Moustache, in North Holme Road, and it is being sponsored by R and Y Motors of Louth.

There will be great prizes, plus refreshments and a raffle.

The cost is £5 per person, with teams of up to four people, and the quiz will start at 7.30pm. Tickets are available from the museum.

The museum’s final exhibition of the year - which covers all aspects of photography - continues until Saturday October 28.

There will cameras dating from the early 1900s through to some of the first digital cameras, a range of photos dating as far back as the Edwardian era, and photos from the Louth Photographic Society - which celebrates its 60th anniversary this year.
