West Cheshire Museums during the Christmas period
16 December 2020There is plenty to see at West Cheshire Museums over Christmas with exhibitions and activities for the whole family.
The Tiger Who Came to Tea exhibition at the Grosvenor Museum in Chester will delight the younger members of the family including a mini Tiger Christmas display. There is also a range of Tiger gifts available in the shop. The exhibition originated by Seven Stories, the National Centre for Children’s Books, is supported by Arts Council England and has been extended until Sunday 28 February.
Children can follow the clues on the Christmas Crystal trail at the Lion Salt Works, Northwich. The first 100 children to book will find that Father Christmas has left a gift for them. There is a winter projection on 19 and 20 December on the exterior wall at the Salt Works, for that extra Christmas atmosphere.
The season of food and salt continues with ‘A Brine Romance: Salt and Food’, which has recently been supplemented with salt-inspired ceramic and glass art works, created by HND Fine and Applied Art students from Warrington & Vale Royal College.
The Visual Art Cheshire Winter Open exhibition is a varied display of selected work by local artists at Weaver Hall Museum and Workhouse.
Councillor Louise Gittins, Leader of Cheshire West and Chester Council and Cabinet Member for Wellbeing, said: “It’s fantastic that our museums are open with such a varied selection of exhibitions and things for the family to look out for. They are a great place to get those last-minute unique gifts as part of your trip out.”
The museums will be closed 24 to 28 December and 1 January.
