Amy Simcox

Development Manager

Meet Amy, our Development Manager. In order to find out more about her, we asked her a few questions and here is what we found out…

  1. Many of the people that Joseph Wright painted chose to be depicted with an object that tells us something about them as a person. What object would you choose and why?
    A tea cup, because everything is made better by a cup of tea.
  1. If you could be any animal from the Nature Gallery, which would you be and why?
    The badger. I love the fact we have such a cool stripy animal native to our country.
  1. What makes you happy?
    A lovely cup of tea.
  1. What do you love to do in your spare time? (Aside from working at the museum, obviously)
    A walk with my springer spaniel which finishes up in a cosy pub.
