Nicola Raybone

Retail and Catering Coordinator

Meet Nicola who is our fabulous Retail and Commercial Supervisor. To help you get to know more about Nicola, we asked her some questions, 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?
    Maybe a parrot? Likes social interaction, playful, loyal and loving but ultimately a bit loud and talks too much
  2. If you could be any animal from the Nature Gallery, which would you be and why?
    One of the Adélie Penguins. They both look really happy and I secretly think they’re having a bit of a giggle when there’s nobody around.
  3. What makes you happy?
    Friends, family, music, dancing, laughter, sunshine, gin.
  4.  What do you love to do in your spare time? (Aside from working at the museum, obviously)
    Holidays, eating out, drinking cocktails, comedy shows, listening and dancing to music, dog walks, relaxing with a good book.
