Museum of Water – have water, will travel

Tuesday 15th March 2016 | News

 

It is amazing how far a bottle of water can go

Or should we say how far many bottles of water can go.

 

LNBP at Braunston’s donation of water to the Museum of Water continues to go far and wide.

 

 

 

 

 

Accumulated over a period of two years, The Museum of Water began in March 2013 and is a collection of publicly donated water and accompanying stories which has been travelling across the UK and Europe showing its wares.

 

Having made contact with us to see if we would like to be involved (of course, we said yes!), LNBP at Braunston donated and painted a bottle of spring water from Braunston Top Lock towards the Museum’s collection.

The Museum of Water’s collection has now been nominated for Museum of the Year 2016 alongside two distinguished UK museums, the Whitworth and the Science Museum.

 

For the full list of Museums, drawn up from across Europe by the European Museum Forum, see here.

 
The latest travels of the Museum of Water have included the FESTIVAL DE KEUZE 2, ROTTERDAM   last month, in anticipation for a large-scale installation in September 2016, in partnership with the Rotterdamse Schouwburg.

 

Also it will be at the LAKES IGNITE FESTIVAL, CUMBRIA from 6th to 8th May. Taking place at Wray Castle’s Boat House, overlooking Lake Windermere, this will be one unforgettable Museum of Water where visitors will be able to view one of the biggest showings of the collection.

 

Before heading to Bournemouth, as part of the fifth Arts by the Sea festival this autumn from 14th to 18th October.
