Exhibition: From Douai to Downside
_________________

From February - April 2018, a new Downside exhibition 'From Douai to Downside: A Story in Words and Objects' will be on display at Radstock Museum.

The exhibition tells the story of how a community of Benedictine monks came to live in the heart of Somerset. It includes objects, photographs and letters from significant moments in Downside's history, such as a 17th century map, a portable altar used by one of the monks in the Boer War, and original photographs of the building of Downside.

The exhibition will be on display at Radstock Museum; an award winning local museum. We are open Tuesday - Friday 2.00pm - 5.00pm, Saturday 11.00am - 5.00pm and Sunday 2.00pm - 5.00pm.
