Residents and workers alike are getting excited about the launch of The Museum Cafe’s new takeaway service this coming weekend at Firepower, The Royal Artillery Museum. This is one of the latest methods that this Woolwich-based cultural hub is enticing new people through the door as well as answering the call of the local area residents who want amenities and the community feel. The Museum Cafe, which opened in the evenings in 2009, has been moving from strength to strength in the last year through a programme of evening events like a quiz night, ghost walks, jazz sessions, winetasting and now a hot takeaway service.
“The Museum Cafe is becoming increasingly popular with local area residents because we really make an effort to listen to customer needs and build up a community presence,” said Frank Crosby, who leads the audience development team for the Museum.
The takeaway service launches this Thursday 8 July alongside Firepower Museum Cafe’s first curry night. All residents have to do is call ahead and come in to pick up their order which meets the needs of returning commuters or come inside for a drink while you wait.

Many people think that going to a museum is a day time experience, probably because we associate engaging, educational trips still as something of ‘a day out’ rather than a leisure past time we undertake week in and week out. In the last few years, there has been a real attempt to change this with such programmes such as Late at Tate which have broadened appeal and accessibility to the gallery.
At Firepower, The Royal Artillery Museum we are also ‘taking back the night’ through a series of fun, community-focused music evenings and trivia events all happening at The Museum Cafe in The Royal Arsenal, which is on the corner of Duke of Wellington Ave. and No. 1 Street. Our aim is to provide interesting evening options for residents of The Royal Arsenal and the area around Woolwich and Greenwich.
As part of this series of events, we are hosting Dave Silk’s Jazz Nights Orchestra with Sarah Jane on vocals, Roger Lewin on piano and Leigh Henson on trumpet from the famed Mardi Gras Jazz Band.
When: Sunday 16 May 2010 @ 5 pm – 8 pm and Friday 21 May 7.30 pm
