Folly Farm recently played host to an entertaining evening of toe-tapping music from across the decades played by Paul Kirner on the Mighty Wurlitzer. During the well-attended evening there was also a chance to join in with a jolly old-time sing-a-long. A great night was had by all, with proceeds from the event going to Tenby Museum.

Tenby Museum and Art Gallery is now, more than ever, reliant on visitors to ensure its continued existence. The Museum is an independent charitable trust that has been open in the town since the 1870s and every effort is being made to keep this important museum and tourist attraction open. It is a place that records the heart and soul of Tenby and surrounding communities, with displays on the story of Tenby, Tenby and WWI, the prehistory of the county, pirates and maritime and also two art galleries.

Folly Farm Marketing Officer Gareth Morris was delighted to hand over a cheque for £200 to Mark Lewis, the Collections Manager at Tenby Museum and Art Gallery and Dr. Kathy Talbot, one of the trustees. Mark said: “Contributions such as this make a real difference. They enable us to carry on doing what we do. A big thank you to Folly Farm and to all those who attended that wonderfully memorable evening.”
