Visitors who have signed up to Culture Warrington’s new membership scheme are being treated to their first exclusive members-only event.

Weird and Wonderful Warrington, which is being held at Warrington Museum & Art Gallery on Saturday August 6, will see collections officer Craig Sherwood talk about the more extraordinary and rare items in the collection.

Members will be told the fascinating stories behind popular exhibits including the mysterious feejee mermaids, cannibal forks and the infamous scold’s bridal, a method of punishment used to torture and publicly humiliate women.

To attend this special free event, which is ideal for visitors of all ages, you can simply sign up as a member by popping in to Pyramid Parr Hall or the museum and art gallery, by calling 01925 442345, or by visiting www.culturewarrington.org/memberships/.
