Remembrance - ‘The Danger Tree’


The Danger Tree exhibition is an exciting new interactive art installation just arrived in Maldon.  Organised by Maldon District Council with the support of Maldon Town Council, it’s on two sites, the Maeldune Heritage Centre (27 October – 13 November) and the Moot Hall (27 October – 18 November). On each site, a different interactive art exhibition will commemorate the centenary of the end of World War I in 1918 and it will bring the reality of this war vividly to life for a new generation.  


This is a powerfully emotional exhibition, using augmented reality to achieve an immersive experience to the viewer.  For the duration of the exhibition, both the Maeldune and the Moot Hall will have extended opening hours: 10-4 Tuesday to Sunday inclusive, except 11th November, which will be 11-4.  




And following this, our next Exhibition will be by popular and well-known local artist Angelique Hartigan returning to us for her second annual exhibition, 16th November to 4th December.  Last year’s show was really popular, so please come and enjoy this lovely exhibition and Angelique’s paintings which are full of life and colour.  There will be plenty of new pictures for this exhibition.


Our visitors look forward to our Christmas Shop each year; this year it will start later than usual, because of the Danger Tree exhibition, and will be open from 8th December to 22nd December inclusive.  We will have all your favourite Christmas craftspeople there and some new makers too.  


And as usual, we will be open for the Maldon Christmas Vintage Evening on 29th November, so as well as our Craft Shop, you will have an extra evening opportunity to see Angelique’s exhibition.


Meanwhile, when visiting us, please enjoy the wonderful Maldon Embroidery – which celebrates and portrays in vivid and colourful detail 1000 years of Maldon’s eventful life, starting from another battle - the famous Battle of Maldon in 991.  


Also - our Craft Gift Shop is full of lovely craft items from our wonderful local craftspeople and our regular displays continue - from The Maldon Society and the Maldon and Burnham Museums.  


We are FREE to enter, and open Tuesday-Saturday, 11-4.  We look forward to seeing you soon!
