digital - Nantwich Museum entrance - Oct 2020 (1)

Nantwich’s Digital Museum continues to flourish in the second lockdown.

The “Nantwich at Play” temporary exhibition staged in the Millennium Gallery in 2015, is now available on the website.

Fun was the keynote of the exhibition, themed on changing social influences to illustrate how the people of the town spent their leisure time through the ages.

A painting by museum artist, Les Pickford, depicting a medieval fair near the parish church, introduces the exhibition.

The panels, drafted by members of the Museumโ€™s Research Group and designed by photographer Paul Topham, include visits to early fairs, excursions by road and rail, sports and horse races at the local course as well as visits to the theatres, cinemas and local zoos.

Nantwich at Play is just the latest addition to the museum website, which now includes several other exhibitions developed in-house and some from external exhibitors.

Visitors can buy local books produced by Museum members, download research booklets documenting various aspects of local history all of which provide a welcome boost to Museum funds at a time when other income streams have been curtailed.

Visitors can also apply through the site to become a member of the Museum Trust, see special offers at Christmas, become a volunteer, or use the “Donate” button to support its service.
