Galleries of Justice January Sale

Galleries cellar

It’s not just shops that get involved in the January sales these days. The Galleries of Justice Museum has rather enterprisingly got involved with its own half price discount.

The museum, which is located in the Lace Market area of Nottingham, has intriguingly taken advantage of the theme by promoting half price entry throughout January for anyone wishing to visit.

This means that people looking for family days out this winter will have to pay just £12.50 for a family ticket of a performance tour of the former gaol and court house. Adults will only have to pay £4.50 per person and children/concessions just £3.50 per person.

As one of the best indoor attractions in the city centre, this novel incentive is a great way to help people get out and visit attractions in the cold and dark winter months.

The performance tours are a popular choice for many people and come highly recommended. This month the tour focuses on two former prisoners of the gaol – Mary Voce and John Fenton, who were imprisoned at the site in the Victorian era. Visitors will get the chance to hear the reincarnations of these characters on tours around the museum.

The tours start at 10.30am between Monday and Friday and 11.30am on Saturdays and Sundays. Last tour is at 3.30pm.

The January Sale is a further development for the Museum, which also offers Medieval Banquets and children’s birthday parties in Nottingham.

Nicola Burley, Director of Enterprise and Operations at the Galleries of Justice Museum, commented: 

‘This represents outstanding value for money and offers families something exciting and educational to do in the post Christmas period. 

We recognise that funds are often low after Christmas and so have decided to cut the admission price by half.  A visit to the Galleries of Justice Museum will engage and entertain the kids as well as their parents.’

Speak In Nottingham To Me – A Beginner’s Guide To Nottingham’s Dialect

Language makes it all easier and helps us work together and understand one another. Throughout history people always felt the need to find one universal language for all. Several attempts were made to popularise different languages…
