A host of autumn events are coming to Braintree Museum this month.

From music and film to Christmas cooking, there will be something for everyone in a jam-packed series of activities.

The events get started on Saturday with the opening of the Pop, Politics and Punk exhibition, which will display how Braintree has changed from the 1960s through to the 1980s.

The exhibition will feature items from the Nintendo Gameboy to decades-old pictures from our very own Braintree and Witham Times.

The museum is looking for donations to the exhibition so if you have any objects, photographs or more from the decades in question then contact 01376 325266 to talk about donating to the display.

Next up will be the Nick Williamson Film Show on Tuesday from 2pm, which will celebrate the work of a prolific amateur film maker who lived in Braintree and used an 8mm camera to document the ever-changing landscape of the town between 1957 and 1987.

Many of the films are given added uniqueness with commentary from Williamson himself.

Tickets are free but booking is essential. The third event in the calendar is a mincemeat making workshop next Friday, November 17, from 7.30pm.

The owner of the Little Fairy Cake Bakery in the town will give take you through the history of mincemeat and show how to make it — and you’ll leave the workshop with a base for a Christmas pudding.

You will need to bring your own mixing bowl, spoon and apron.

Tickets, which include refreshments, ingredients and jars, are £20 and booking is essential.

Rounding off a busy November at the museum will be a tea and talk event entitled The Lost Railways of Essex with David Gridley from 3pm to 4pm on Tuesday, November 21.

David will present plenty of photos and film as he talks through the way railways have changed in the country. Admission will be free.
