VISITORS to Bromsgrove’s Avoncroft Museum this weekend will be guaranteed a ‘prefabulous’ time as part of a special celebration for the temporary buildings constructed in the 1940s.
Tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday (July 24) staff will be toasting the 70th birthday of the venue’s prefab.
The popular building (complete with air raid shelter outside) was constructed in 1946 after being brought to the museum from Birmingham.
The home to 30 historic buildings and other interesting exhibits will be celebrating with live music, prefab exhibitions, rock ‘n’ roll dance classes, an authentic tea party with tea and cake and a traditional fairground with rides and sports day activities to keep youngsters entertained throughout the day.
Those who used to live in a prefab will also have a place where they can go to share their past memories with the team from the prefab museum. They are also urged to take along any memories or photographs they have which relate to their prefab.
Over the 19-acre ground firm public favorites like the working 19th-century windmill, the medieval town house and the national telephone kiosk collection will also be open too for the public to visit and see.
