Louth Museum



Louth Museum hosts and presents special events throughout the year so please keep checking this page for information about future events we have planned for the season.

Louth-made clocks

5 April to 8 July 2023

A beautiful collection of Louth-made eighteenth and nineteenth century longcase (i.e. “grandfather”) clocks, kindly loaned for the exhibition by local collectors: Andy Cooper, Andy Doe, Ewan Semper and Eric Johnson.

Two of the owners of the clocks, Ewan Semper and Andy Cooper are planning to be in the museum on certain days during the exhibition. They will guide visitors around the clocks, answer any questions, and also have a clock movement on the test stand.


Louth Shops and Pubs, Then & Now

26 July to 7 October 2023

A sequel to our hugely popular exhibition in 2021, we present old photos of shops and pubs, alongside recent photos of exactly the same locations.

Louth Market Place

18 October to 28 October 2023

The history of Louth Market Place, an exhibition of photos, information, and audio recordings, prepared by Keith Angel, Dave Angel and Lynsey Allett.

Spectrum Arts are running a year-long project, funded by the heritage Lottery Fund, that encourages local people to explore and celebrate the heritage of Louth Market. The work will include oral history, sounds of the market, tales from the traders and shoppers, a history of important events, and a look ahead to the market of the future. The Louth Museum exhibition forms part of the project, along with a website and large-format book, featuring stories and photos from the past and present. The displays will include many old and unusual pictures and stories about the market. These will be accompanied by examples from our programme of oral history interviews, presented in traditional written form and also as part of an audio-visual soundscape experience, designed to immerse the listener in the atmosphere and sounds of the market. There will also be a film made up from old and contemporary market footage, along with audio and art works created by the pupils of local schools as part of their project work.
