We are delighted to be able to announce that – with the help of some incredibly generous donors – the Friends of Athelstan Museum have been able to buy the Moravian Church in Oxford Street.
This is particularly exciting as a year ago as the church came off the market and we thought Malmesbury was going to lose out on a fantastic and multi-use facility. No longer: we now are planning in earnest for what will be a truly invaluable educational space for the town.
As an addition to the museum, the church will be able to accommodate much larger visiting parties; a richer variation of activities, fantastic lecture facilities and increased exhibition space. Furthermore, the church can be used for a whole host of social events, and we will increase its amenity value by smartening up what for too long had been a unattractive building in an advanced state of disrepair.
