Felixstowe Museum are finalists at the Norfolk and Suffolk Tourism Awards 2018

Posted by on 2 February 2018 | Comments

Felixstowe Museum are one of the finalists at this year’s prestigious EADT (East Anglian Daily Times) EDP (Eastern Daily Press) Norfolk and Suffolk Tourism Awards 2018.

The museum is one of only three attractions from across Norfolk and Suffolk nominated in the ‘Best Small Visitor Attraction’ category. The awards are a celebration of what the area has to offer, and rewards organisations and individuals who live and love the place they call home.

Based at the Landguard Peninsula, Felixstowe Museum has 14 galleries displaying military and social history. Even the building is of historical interest as it was once a submarine mining establishment. The museum is managed by a team of friendly, dynamic volunteers who are always happy to help. Their expertise is second to none and is always delivered with enthusiasm and a passion for history.

The awards are being held next Thursday (8 February) at the magnificent St. Edmundsbury Cathedral in Bury St. Edmunds.

Jan Willis, one of the volunteers at the museum, said

“The museum is thrilled to be one of this year’s finalists in these prestigious tourism awards, and we look forward to joining our colleagues at Bury St. Edmunds next week for this celebration of the tourism industry”.

Stephen Rampley, Marketing and Events Co-ordinator at Visit Felixstowe, said

“This is a great honour for Felixstowe. The town should be very proud that our museum is a finalist in these important tourism awards. We would like to wish them the best of luck next Thursday”.
