EXHIBITIONS AND EVENTS
Our 40th Anniversary Exhibition, featuring photographs and documents from the 40 year history of the museum is now running! Come and visit to see how the museum has changed and developed over the last forty years….and perhaps take a moment to look at what may happen in the next forty years!
This exhibition will run from 14th July until 10th September.
Teign Heritage has been fortunate to be awarded a grant from the Women’s Vote Centenary Grants Scheme to put on an exhibition about women’s suffrage this summer.
The display tells the story of the struggle from 1832 to 1928, with specific information about events in Teignmouth and South Devon and the groups of women who campaigned for the vote at the turn of the 20th century. We have also been able to add new research about local people and events, discovered this year as part of the centenary celebrations!
We are particularly proud of the photos in our archives of the Pilgrimage March, organised by the National Union of Women’s Suffrage Societies, from Lands End to Hyde Park, which came through Teignmouth on July 3rd 1913.
The photo shows the marchers and onlookers gathered at the Fountain in the Triangle at the Town Centre.
(Please note , the Fountain has since been moved to the Little Triangle, so the venue may not be immediately recognisable today.)
Following the success of our series of History Walks in 2017, we are running another series this year! Its a great opportunity to learn about the history of Teignmouth, taking a short stroll through our town with a Museum Guide.
Running EVERY TUESDAY at 11am throughout August, the walks will start from the Museum and will last approximately 1 hyour. The cost is £5 per person which also includes a Museum admission!
Another in our succesful series of Craft Fairs is planned for Saturday 11th August, so come along and support the local crafters and perhaps visit the current exhibitions too!
The Teign Room is available for hire to local community groups and businesses. All enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org or 01626 777041

Teignmouth Town Heritage Trail
The Trail was started in 2005 by the Teignmouth Folk Festival with boards at points of interest round the town for residents and visitors to read. This proved very popular, and it was extended to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee year in 2012 and again in 2014. Taking advantage of new technology, the Trail now incorporates a website which can be accessed by Smartphone. There are also Audio Guides using microdot technology which allow users to access the trail information if they have sight problems. The Trail starts at the Museum and the Audio Guides are available there to pick up from Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10am. There is a deposit to be paid for taking the Audio Guides out of the Museum.
