Boscastle has its very own village magazine named the Blowhole (photo above). They have kindly devoted a whole page to the Museum in their latest edition (see top two photos below). The article primarily looks at the refurbishment that took place over winter and upcoming events. They have also included an advert for our candlelit evenings this year (see bottom photo). Many thanks to the editors of the Blowhole (and everyone in the village) for their continued support.
The Director of the Museum, Simon Costin, will be interviewed at 3.15pm on Thursday July 2nd on BBC Radio Cornwall. He will be speaking with Tiffany Truscott on the Afternoon Show about our temporary exhibition - Witches and Witchlore: the illustrations of Jos A Smith (pictured below).

Information from the window display follows:
