Pop-Up Museum


In 2023, Gawber Primary celebrated the 50th anniversary of the opening of the school on its current site. In order to mark this occasion, the school decided to hold a special summer fair and ‘Pop Up Museum’ where all of the proceeds contributed positively to the school’s ever challenging budget.  


This event however, was designed to go much further than celebrating the 50 years of the current school site. The idea behind the event was to bring the whole community together to celebrate the wonderful community of Gawber – past and present.


Gawber School have been working closely with the Gawber History Group for some time now and they have provided the school with a wealth of photographs, information and memorabilia to help teach the children about the local community. This was something that Gawber School wanted to share with the community and so the Pop-Up Museum was designed to do just that. It was a celebration of Gawber children past and present. It was a celebration of those that have lived in the community all of their lives and those who are lucky enough to have just recently joined. It is a celebration for anyone who feels the connection to, what we like to call, THE GAWBER FAMILY.
