Museum Shop Sunday

Sunday Nov 29 is Museum Shop Sunday

It’s never been more important to get everyone supporting their favourite cultural attractions and #Museum Shop Sunday and indeed throughout November is an opportunity to showcase our exclusive products and buy something from our unique collection.

Visit our new online shop.

  • The lovely range of unique gift ideas are inspired by the museum’s collection
  • Many of the gifts are made in Suffolk and feature local artists.


Our bone china mug has a delightful drawing of Bawdsey Manor as it might have looked in 1937 when it became RAF Bawdsey.  The artist is a Royal Academy prize winner Mark Beesley from Woodbridge and they are made for us by Carters in Stonham.

Janet Watson, is a local printmaker and bookbinder from Hollesley.  She has crafted a unique artists notebook for us. She has used an original RAF Bawdsey stamp to print on the fabric cover, which is itself made from genuine RAF shirting. A souvenir to treasure!

For a fun idea we have a “Keep Calm and stay under the radar” enamel mug, made locally in Ipswich by Star Editions. Rather appropriate at the moment.

All of the mugs in our collection are bespoke as are the accompanying coasters. One of our volunteers especially designed the sector clock coaster to show the time at 20:18. This is the year that Bawdsey Radar Trust reopened!

Books in our shop are especially chosen to link to the radar story – from history to cookery.  Something for everyone.

All of our bespoke or exclusive items are only available from us.  Find the perfect gift and support Bawdsey Radar and its important story.
