Secondly, special admission prices ......
Between Friday 31st Aug and Sunday 2nd Sept the Museum is offering a special 2-for-1 admission. Two adults can enjoy the Museum for just £5 in total (normally £5 each). Accompanied children are FREE.

Thirdly, a Festival Walk ......
On Sunday 2nd Sept, you are invited to take a gentle stroll around our lovely historic town, ably led by a member of The Wallingford Historical & Archaeological Society.
The walk is FREE (donations never refused!), but it would also be an excellent opportunity to combine it with a visit to the Museum to see this year's special exhibitions and to learn the latest local research about Agatha Christie.
Meet for the walk at Wallingford Museum at 11am, and be back by 1pm.
