SAM talks to Steve Redgrave

Ok, not Sir Steve Redgrave of Olympics fame but this coming Saturday (28th May 2016) our Chairman, Bill Coultard, will be speaking to BBC Radio Humberside’s Steve Redgrave on BBC Radio Humberside between 8:45am and 8:50am to preview the Open Day taking place later the same day.

The Open Day will be the last of 2016 as we close in June to re-open in 2017 at our new Green Lane site so this is an opportunity not to be missed.

Sir Steve was no stranger to gaining gold in his boat and we’re hoping that the Vikings who are joining us on Saturday are not coming to reclaim theirs from the Museum!

The Vikings are coming!

SAM is delighted to welcome members of the Jorvik Viking Centre to our forthcoming Open Day on the 28th May 2016.  Jorvik, suffered substantial flood damage in December 2015 and is presently closed.  Like SAM, Jorvik will be re-opening in Spring 2017 but, in the meantime they are wanting to involve people in #CampaignCanute to help develop and fund new and even better experiences and displays when they re-open.  More details of #CampaignCanute can be found on  Jorvik’s own website.
