Two new exciting exhibitions have been launched today in Hitchin as a cultural hub reopens after a winter break.
The British Schools Museum in Queen Street is hosting Life in Miniature, as well as Hitchin Then and Now.
The former features miniatures and models – as visitors get the chance to discover what they mean to the people who made them, played with them and preserved them for the future.
You will even get the chance to stroll around a mini market, take a trip to the theatre, or put your feet up in a charming dolls house.
The exhibition will also include unique displays created by community groups as part of the project called Your Fantasy Room.

The latter exhibition chronicles how Hitchin has changed over time by using historic photographs from the museum archive – displayed alongside new images of the town we know today.
The museum is open from 10am to 4pm on Tuesdays, 10am to 1pm on Saturday and 2pm to 5pm on Sunday.
