A celebration of all things nerdy at Erewash Museum. We're so excited. So many fantastic partners are joining us, the local library, Ilkeston library from Derbyshire Library Service are bringing some of their comic books for comic day on Wednesday. Project D, the crazy popular loaded doughtnuts are coming on Thursday. We're also having a super hero disco party that day, but we'll let anyone come to grab some doughnuts, while there's some left, that is! I'm particularly excited about Friday, I grew up reading HP series so Witches and Wizards, magic mirror photo opportunities, potions class and wand making sound amazing.
