What’s On

Christmas in the Past

Saturday 6th December 2-5pm Weaver Hall Museum, Northwich

Ghosts of Christmas past will be adding atmosphere for visitors to the museum on Saturday 6th December.  There will be characters from the Victorian workhouse demonstrating some of the chores and revealing how the routine changed for the Yuletide period.

There will also be activities in our 1950s and 60s exhibition as the recreated living room is being made festive with period Christmas decorations and there will be the chance to make some garlands and baubles to take away.

All of the Christmas in the Past activities are free, including materials, and you’ll even get a complimentary mince pie!

Further details about the museum can be found on the main museum website.

 Recorders

 

The “Chester Recorders”  by renowned maker Peter Bressan are in the collection of the Grosvenor Museum.  They form the only complete set of Bressan instruments in the UK, including Treble in F, Alto in D, Tenor in C, Bass in F, (bass not pictured here).  They originally belonged to the Cholmondeley family and were found in an attic in 1800.  There are two further Bressan recorders in the museum, and you can see all six on display in the museum’s period house.
