RCM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Our new 'LOYALTY' cards
« on: January 09, 2017, 05:46:57 PM »
Hello everybody . . . just to let you know that from NEXT Sunday (15th January) we are launching our Loyalty Cards.
For each ticket you purchase you will receive a sticker to put onto your card. Once you have six stickers you can then use this card to gain entry on your next visit - your seventh visit is FREE!

i.e. A family of four will get four stickers on entry, the next time they visit (again if all four people buy tickets) they will receive four more stickers. This will fill one card and start your next one. On your next visit after that you can use the full card to gain one free entry. For this free entry you will not receive a sticker. Remember you need six stickers to fill the card - you can then use the card to gain entry for one person on your next visit - you will hand in your old card as payment. You will then receive a new card on your next paid visit. We reserve the right to withdraw this offer at any time. E&EO.

See you ALL very soon.

The RCM team.

« on: January 18, 2016, 10:26:21 PM »
We actually did it - we moved the entire museum and set quite a bit of it back up too . . . in less than two weeks! ;)
Massive thank you to everybody involved in the move . . . we really couldn't have done it without you!
It means a lot to me both personally and professionally to have the continued support of you all - some new faces involved too - which is ALWAYS good.
We will be announcing shortly when our first day of opening will be. Please keep an eye on the forums and of course on our facebook page too.
