The Magic Attic

Local History - Local Heritage - from Local Folk

Registered Charity No 1094124

We stage talks and exhibitions throughout the year in the Magic Attic, Sharpe’s Pottery Museum and in other locations around the local area.

Keep a regular check on this page or by following us on Facebook & Twitter to see what we’re up to.

Due to the demise of the Farmers Market we will now attend the regular Swadlincote market on the last Saturday of every month.

We will attend the market from 9am - 2pm between March and December.

Come along to our stall on the Delph for a look at some of our images and publications.

If you have any old film of local places or events which you would be happy to share then please get in touch with us.

Following the huge success of our 2018 Film Evenings we are hoping to do more film shows in 2019 so keep an eye on this page for more details.
