Community at Tullie House

As well as looking to the past with our extensive collections, we're all about the here and now. We run a whole host of enriching activities to engage the local community, many of them completely free. 

The Tullie House Community programme is generously supported by The Cumberland and Westmorland Antiquarian and Archaeological Society (CWAAS).

Tullie Art Group

We invite you to join us and enjoy a relaxing and creative art session inspired by our beautiful collection. This is a fantastic opportunity to meet like-minded people whilst being guided by an experienced artist.

Meet Me at the Museum

We would like to invite you to spend a morning or afternoon with us at the museum. Come and enjoy a brew and a slice of cake as we chat and share stories.  We’ll take inspiration from the museum’s diverse range of objects to get creative and have a bit of fun!

Tullie Textiles

Why not join us from the comfort of your living room to enjoy a relaxing hour of social crafting whilst taking a closer look at unseen pieces of the Tullie textiles collection.

This group is a lovely opportunity to be inspired by beautiful and quirky items from the museum’s costume collection, and to learn new textile techniques with professional artist Helen Walsh.
