David Livingstone Birthplace hosts its first ever Youth Open Day!

Join us for food and refreshments, a DJ and music, table tennis, and a print-making workshop - inspired by patterns, textures, and colours found in our collection. There’ll also be a short presentation from our Learning & Engagement team, where you can discover more about our exhibition and meet our team!

This is a day to celebrate YOU - our vibrant young adult audience - and open applications for the museum's new Youth Committee. It’s also a chance to connect with peers and your local community organisations.

The application window for the DLB Youth Committee will open from 22nd July - 22nd August, with the committee due to commence in September 2022.
