We want to photograph your finds for the exhibition, and record your thoughts and feelings about the significance of local archaeology and why metal detecting is important to you?

4pm to 5pm Quiz

Test your knowledge of literary crimes with this fun quiz to end the day.


Diamond Crime was founded by crime writers Steve Timmins, Jeff Dowson and Phil Rowlands. They were all published authors looking for a new home for their books, but finding the tortuous and ego-denting experience wearing, they decided there had to be another way of doing this, a different way. So, after months of research into the world of small indie publishing and knowing what they and other writers, they were sure, wanted from a publisher – trust, care, support, creative collaboration as well a platform for their books – they decided to take the plunge, and so Diamond Books and its first imprint, Diamond Crime, was launched in May 2021. Now it has eight authors with another couple in the pipeline, fourteen books published and ten more on the way. Their plan is to grow organically, not just go for numbers. They want to spend time with their authors so that their books are the best they can be. They are a platform for new and established voices and an opportunity for those talented writers out there, who can’t get their books published or even read.


SCAM: A Film by Nick Swannell

After her ambitious mother’s hustle fails to secure their theatre home, exploited singer Ella joins her con-artist sister’s social media scam. But when the truth about their father’s death emerges, family loyalty only goes so far.
Award-winning local producer, director and composer Nick Swannell’s debut feature film ‘SCAM’, will be shown at the museum next Friday evening (22nd July) at 7pm.
‘Scam’ is a neo-noir crime thriller about a family of scammers. It explores interdependence and abuse via a claustrophobic mother-daughter relationship and illustrates how social media platforms provide an easily-accessible global reach for scam artists. A desire for an easy buck may challenge our morality and brutalise our sensibilities, but how malicious
must someone become to escape exploitation?
The film was written and co-produced by film producer, graphic designer and sculptor Alison Rayner. The cast includes local actors Bibi MacDougall and Abby Brenchley.
