A date for your diaries, albeit likely to be a very busy day as the Museum of London is having one of its occasional “pay what you can” days for its major exhibitions.

The Cheapside Hoard, is as I have written before, an unparalleled collection of Elizabethan and Stuart period jewellery that hasn’t been seen in its entirety for a  100 years.

Tickets are normally £10 per adult (or free for Museum Members), but if you phone them on 020 7001 9844 to book tickets for Sat 25 Jan*, you can “offer however much you like for your tickets”.

Of course, if you’re feeling generous and rich, you could offer to pay more than the usual ten pound note.

Note — if you arrive with a bag, it’ll cost you an extra pound to leave it in a locker, as they won’t permit any bags into the exhibition. Well, it is full of very small, and very valuable objects.

Related — if you prefer, there is a late night opening until 9pm on the 10th January.

*The email said Sat 26th Jan, but that’s a Sunday, and they have always been on Saturdays in the past.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
