Couldn't find a thread on this so...I saw on TenTenths that a Tom Pryce exhibition will be on display at Denbigh museum this Autumn. It's only open for short afternoon sessions  as , like so many similar sites, it is now run by volunteers. We are en route to Llleyn Peninsula in ten days and my contact at Denbigh CC has very kindly arranged an early opening for us .

 

I will report back .

Thanks for this.

 

Looks like a trip to Denbigh this month is needed.

Denbigh Museum. Grove Road. Denbigh.  Tom Pryce Exhibition.

 

The  Tom Pryce exhibition  about his life and events, with photographs, articles, trophies etc  will continue for another month at least, it would be good to make it a more permanent exhibition  considering he was one of the few Welshmen to make it into  F1  and I am not ignoring the  ones from earlier  GP days.

It will continue to open  until the end of October  & maybe longer if there is enough response,  on Monday & Thursday  2.00 to 4.00 pm* or other times by request  by contacting  email: gwyneth.kensler@denbighshire.gov.uk    or 07792 315723. (* ie 14.00 to 16.00)

I went yesterday and it was well worth the trip. There was a welsh language video that featured Tom and the Token which was new to me (Gwyneth kindly provided translations as I do not speak the lingo).

I went again today taking  another friend who did not know it was on, & to see the videos which I had missed on the first visit.

Just to up date that this exhibition continues  if people visit   that is until it ends!

If people continue to visit then  the volunteers at the Denbigh museum will  try to keep it available as  in previous visiting  by appointment or Monday & Thursdays 2pm to 4 pm.Denbigh Museum. Grove Road. Denbigh.

It is in the museum,  I thought they might make the museum exhibition more permanent.
