Tiverton Museum of Mid Devon Life is a family friendly and welcoming home to our large and outstanding collections that tell the story of the fascinating history of Mid Devon.

In 2019 we reviewed our governance, resulting in the formation of a new Charitable incorporated Organisation (CIO) and the recruitment of new trustees.  Prior to the pandemic, we were planning a major re-development of the Museum to enhance our galleries and provide a new space for temporary exhibitions and events, making the best use of our site and creating a more visible presence. We also undertook a business development study funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and produced an audience development plan for the Museum.

To help us take the Museum forward and plan our future operation we are seeking to appoint a new Chair to join our Board.  We are looking for someone who can support all aspects of the work of the museum with diverse skills and experience but who has experience of being a Trustee and would relish the role of Chair.   We are looking for someone who has a strong connection to the Mid Devon area and is excited to be part of the next phase of our development.
