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.

We are unable to attend the market in Swadlincote due to a lack of volunteers.

We hope to start again when volunteers are available.

When we are able to attend come along to our stall on the Delph and take a look at some of our publications and images.
