The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.

Museums and Heritage Magazine announcement

Museums + Heritage Show Ltd acquires leading sector magazine
creating Europe’s largest online resource for the cultural community

Tuesday 29th April, London, Museums + Heritage Show Ltd, owners of the annual Museums + Heritage Show and Awards, has today announced the acquisition of the leading cultural sector title: Museums and Heritage.
The magazine acquisition responds to the growing need for a dominant, comprehensive online resource to connect and inspire museums, designers, suppliers and contractors within the cultural sector.
The Museums and Heritage Magazine, which was owned by Ten Alps Communications Ltd, has never previously been connected with Museums + Heritage Show Ltd. The Show and Awards organisers will merge the acquired magazine into Museums + Heritage Advisor – already an online hub of essential information and advice that informs, inspires and connects those working in the museums and heritage industry.
Anna Preedy, Director of Museums + Heritage Show Ltd, said: “We’re delighted to announce the acquisition of Museums and Heritage magazine. By integrating the finest elements of the magazine into our popular Advisor website we will provide those working within the sector with an unparalleled online resource – a one-stop-shop for information, case studies and sector news as well as the opportunity to connect with each other.”
The magazine acquisition completes the company’s 20-year-long industry stronghold, adding the magazine title to the prestigious Museums + Heritage Awards for Excellence and the annual Museums + Heritage Show – the UK’s largest event for the cultural sector. The Show at Olympia, London on May 14th and 15th brings together all of the latest technologies, services and thinking for professionals working in museums, galleries, heritage and cultural visitor attractions.
