Christmas at Nantwich Museum

Christmas at Nantwich Museum

Nantwich Museum is celebrating Christmas with a Sing-a-long Concert of Christmas music led by the Wistaston Singers. The concert is free, although donations to the museum are always greatly received, and drop-in 11.00 am – 12.00 pm Saturday 22 December 2018.

It is an opportunity to visit the Museum Shop where a wide range of goods are available, including Christmas cards and other greeting cards, games, toys, souvenirs, craft work including jewellery, books, cheese/chopping boards, jams and chutneys. New this year are mugs with scenes of Nantwich and Nantwich 2019 Calendars.

Amongst the range of local interest books is the recently published “Nantwich Pubs” by local authors Andrew Lamberton and Bill Pearson.

Nantwich Pubs Book

This most readable book has proved very popular and provides historical information on an important part of the social scene of Nantwich. It would make an excellent Christmas present.

There is also a special offer for those wishing to support the museum by becoming a Friend with no subscription renewal required until April 2020.  Membership includes e-mail newsletters, discounts on talks and events, invitations to exclusive Member events and an opportunity to vote at the AGM. Individual membership costs £20 and Families £30. Application forms are available from the museum or can be downloaded from the museum website.

As well as the permanent displays telling the fascinating story of Nantwich and the surrounding area, visitors can enjoy two temporary exhibitions, the 2018 Nantwich Camera Club Photographic Exhibition and Empowerment of Women – a local perspective, both of which run up to the New Year.

Admission to the museum and exhibitions is free.

The museum will close 4.30 pm Saturday 22 December 2018 and will reopen at 10.30 am on Wednesday 2 January 2019.

As an independent charitable trust run by its Members and a small staff the museum is financed by donations, sponsorship, commercial activities such as the shop and various grants.
