The Nat is self funded, so for us the saying “every little helps” is very true.  Please come along and help us to raise some much needed funds on Saturday 21st October when we will be holding another of our popular bric-a-brac and book stalls. The museum will be open on the same day where we will be providing as usual a cuppa and a biscuit.
October is the month of Halloween and for the irst time ever Mrs Ibbitts would like to invite you and your little trick or treaters to visit her in her haunted house. Sit with her to hear a spooky tale or dare to plunge your hand into her cauldron of green slime. Free trick or treat back for children.
Visit us in November when we remember Bacup’s war dead, and where on Saturday 18th Novemeber we will have on  display the private WW1 collection of Mr Andrew Mackay from Burnley. Andrew a local WW1 researcher, webmaster of Burnley in the Great War and author of The Royal Edward Disaster and Made of the Right Stuff the history of the 11th Lancashire Fusiliers in the Great War will be available to answer any questions.
To complete a fantastic year of events and our Heritage Lottery project we finish the year on the 2nd December with our fabulous Don’t Waste Bread event. As Christmas approached, the queues for food in Bacup and Stacksteads at local shops were as prominent here as they were all over the country. Supplies in the various shops were intermittent and irregular. Butter, jam and the newly introduced margarine were in short supply. Christmas parties were cancelled due to the various restrictions on food and wastage. So come along and taste a 1917 Bacup Christmas. As usual we will have some fabulous raffle prizes for the adults and a Christmas Card competition for the children to enjoy.
