Autumn came early this year - it may be getting chillier, but a warm welcome always awaits you at the Maeldune!  Come and see the wonderful Maldon Embroidery – 42ft of sumptuous design and vibrant colour – as alive now as when it was made 26 years ago!  The Embroidery is of course the highlight of our presentation, and while you are here, there is more to see ….



The annual Maldon Art Trail is coming up fast, and we are looking forward to being part of this again.  As in 2016, we are showcasing the vibrant artwork of Plume Academy Students.  We are lucky in that our own exhibition runs from 14th September to 3rd October, so it extends for a little longer than the Art Trail dates (23 September – 1 October),  which is a real bonus for us!





And looking ahead, we are proud to present the artist Michael Blooman – a wonderful exhibition of Watercolours and Original Lino Cut Prints made by hand on his Albion printing press.  The exhibition runs 6th to 24th October.


Many of the works on show and for sale have been made especially for this exhibition and feature Maldon’s iconic Sailing Barges and our maritime heritage.


Working with local Museums ….

We are delighted that our partnering with two local sister heritage venues continues;  the Maldon Museum – ‘The Museum in the Park’ and Burnham-on-Crouch and District Museum.


A display on the history of the iconic Thames Sailing Barges, for which Maldon and its maritime heritage is so justly celebrated, is presented courtesy of the Maldon Museum and features a wonderful model barge and artefacts relating to their construction and history.  And examples of locally found fossils and the story of salt making, are displayed courtesy of the Burnham Museum.  


The Maldon Society presents an extensive photographic display from their Archive, focusing on the fascinating history of this town.  And we also celebrate the tradition of the local Carnival with many nostalgic photographs of Carnivals past.
