Witnessing Red Lodge Museum being given a spruce

Recently I was invited along to Bristol’s Red Lodge Museum by the Senior Curator to record and write up preparations for the 2017 opening of the building. Red Lodge opens in the spring each year and this time it underwent a particularly special spruce. I documented this by taking photos and writing up a blog post for the Bristol Museums’ blog. You can find this here.
