Have you been reading the Annual Museums Survey 2023? Then you’ll be pleased to hear about our new benchmarking tool. This benchmarking tool will enable you to compare your museum with museum organisations across the country depending on a number of factors such as visitor size band, governance type, among others.

Travelling Together kicked off to an enthusiastic start at SS Great Britain in September. 85 individual delegates from museums and heritage organisations across the South West have so far attended five in-depth training sessions with one more to go. Read the newsletter to find out about our upcoming opportunities to join Equality, Diversity and Inclusion learning peer networks through Travelling Together.

We’ve also launched a new advice session on Arts Council England newly refreshed Project Grants, Wednesday 29 November at 11am, if you’re thinking of applying make sure that you are signed up.

In addition to all this and a good news story from Tewkesbury Museum, we’ll be delivering your usual round-up of news, specialist support and funding opportunities in this issue.
