A day of festival-style activities is planned for the reopening of the Pewsey Heritage Centre next Saturday.

The centre will be open between 10am and 4pm for the first time since a major refurbishment project.

Pewsey Male Voice Choir will perform, Pewsey Vale Amateur Dramatic Society will relate the First World War with sketches, Wiltshire Museum Service will run activities and there will be a village-wide treasure hunt.

Fritha Costain, a Pewsey Heritage Centre trustee, said: “We’re very pleased that the museum is reopening and even more excited that our relaunch event has become a community festival of history for people of all ages.”
