Hello I’m Tony Butler. During 2005-2013 I was Director of the the Museum of East Anglian Life and posted blogs about activities at the museum and stuff about the countryside .
In 2014 I took up a new role of Executive Director of Derby Museums Trust. I’ll now be writing about museums and the urban! I’m still involved with the Happy Museum project and retain my interests in well being and the environment.
I divide my time in semi rural Belper (weekdays) and rural Suffolk (weekends). We still have an old house, which a neighbour charitably calls ‘shabby chic’.
