Coventry music museum joins venture to help bring in new exhibits and volunteers

Coventry Editorial 4th Sep, 2023   0

COVENTRY Music Museum has become the first venue to sign up for a new membership package to help boost its footfall and volunteer numbers.

The Museum, which is celebrating its tenth birthday this year, has signed up to Destination Coventry, under its new ‘Lite’ membership package.

Coventry Music Museum opened in 2013 and has been run by volunteers passionate about celebrating the city’s musical heritage for the last decade.

Curator, Pete Chambers BEM is working on expanding the museum’s offer using new technologies to create immersive experiences and new showpiece exhibits.

He said: “We’re proud Coventrians and love being a part of what the city has to offer, our goal now is to grow what we can do and preserve the museum for the future.

“Our footfall has grown significantly over the last 12 months, and as a result, we are going to need to get probably five or so more volunteers to facilitate our growth.

“But we want to continue that growth too, and by working with and joining Destination Coventry we think that this is great way to do that.

“Our tenth birthday is on the horizon and we have some big plans for the future too.”

Destination Coventry is a membership organisation which looks to attract more visitors to the city and its venues.

It has recently launched its Lite membership to enable more organisations to access membership benefits, including marketing opportunities, business support and specialist advice.

Paul Jones, Managing Director of Destination Coventry, said:“Coventry Music Museum is one of the jewels of our tourism offer in Coventry, with thousands of people visiting every year due to the city’s rich musical heritage.

“We look forward to working with Pete and his team to promote the museum to more visitors and encourage them to drop in when they visit Coventry.”
