2018
 
January - March 2018: Museum display at the Gloucester Life Museum. From January until March we have been kindly asked by the curator of the Gloucester Life Museum if we would like to put on a display celebrating the Original Company from 1860-1986 and a little about the newly reborn Company and Museum, pop along and see over 120 years worth of Company history. Come and see rare artefacts and objects and some more common in this display. We are hoping the next time this will happen will be in our own Museum once the funds have been raised for the purchase of a site and building to house the ever growing museum collection.
 
23 & 24 June 2018: Tewkesbury Model/Miniature Steam Rally - entry: £5 per adult
 
2019
 
Unfortunately, the Museum did not attend any events during 2019 as a decision was taken to spend a year consolidate the Museum collection and research materials for ease of use and reference in the future. 2020 will hopefully bring a new start for the Museum as we aim to attend slightly larger events than previously attended.
 
2020
 
160 Years of the Gloucester Railway Carriage and Wagon Company - the Museum is looking to hold a special event in Gloucester to celebrate this remarkable achievement. We shall update all of our followers through Facebook, Twitter and our website as more details become available. 
 
75th Anniversary since the end of World War II in Europe (VE-Day).
 
 
14 November 2020 - Exhibition at the Folk of Gloucester (formerly the Gloucester Life Museum/Gloucester Folk Museum).
