The Farmland Museum & Denny Abbey
Trainer: Hannah Jackson, Operations Manager (West), Norfolk Museums Service
This exciting new course from Hannah Jackson, who has developed a wide range of successful events for Norfolk Museums Service, is ideal for anyone involved in developing or delivering museum events, or those interested in creating an activity programme.
The course will cover:
- Identifying different aims and objectives for running events
- Key audiences, their needs and requirements
- The resourcing of activities and working with freelancers
- Successful event planning logistics and strategies
- Operational and legal requirements of event management
- Engaging evaluation techniques
By the end of the course participants will have explored the diverse reasons why museums run events and will have questioned how to apply this to their site. They will have considered practical planning techniques to ensure success and will have learnt the different legal requirements for event management. Finally, they will explore how to incorporate evaluation into event activities and to apply findings to inform future event planning.
Hannah has planned and delivered many successful events at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse, including their popular Village at War and Apple Day events.
Refreshments will be provided, but please bring a packed lunch with you or make your own arrangements.
