This February, Shewsbury will celebrate our intrinsic links to Darwin with a festival like never before – a full-on DarwIN Shrewsbury Festival of discovery.
From free guided tours to brainteasing lectures and dance performances – join in the host of interactive events being staged in and around the town.
The DarwIN Shrewsbury Festival is organised with the help of Croud Digital Marketing, Friends of the Museum, Jon King, Morris and Company, Royal Society of Biology, Severn Rivers Trust, Shrewsbury BID, Shrewsbury Heritage, Shrewsbury Unitarian Trust, Shrewsbury Town Council, Shropshire Council, Shropshire Wildlife Trust.
This two and a half week programme is the first of its kind and cements Shrewsbury’s rightful position as not only the birthplace of Charles Darwin but the inspiration behind his independent thinking which went on to the change the story of evolution around the world.
