Rose St Cottage of Curiosities in Sheerness is opening for the first time as part of Heritage Open Days

Rose St Cottage of Curiosities in Sheerness is opening for the first time as part of Heritage Open Days on Thur 7th, Fri 8th, and Sat 9th September from 11 am – 3 pm.

Children can follow our Trail to discover and learn about some of our curious artefacts and earn a Wheels of Time badge to add to their collection.  On Thursday 7th and Friday 8th, in our Scullery, there will be cookery demonstrations to show what would have been created there during war-time. 

In our upstairs Gallery, our Ship’s Figureheads exhibition, which runs throughout September, will feature Sheerness Dockyard built naval ships from 1677 to 1903. Many of these ships had figureheads right up until 1900. The exhibition will include photographs and paintings of figureheads by artist Janys Thornton.

In the evening of Friday 8th from 7.30 – 8.30 pm and again on the afternoon of Saturday 9th 2.30 – 3.30 pm, Jeremy Thornton will give a talk in the Gallery on ship’s figureheads.
NOTE: Pre-booking is essential for talks, max 12 people, please call Chris on 07775 712306 to book.

During your visit, you can treat yourself to a delicious cream tea in the Cottage Garden.
