WARWICKSHIRE rich heritage will be celebrated once again in the county town.

The Market Hall Museum in Warwick won the national Museums at Night Connect 10 competition last year which saw the staging of The Great Warwickshire Show and Tell – where community groups and other organisations explained to visitors why the county was so important to them and why it is so ‘great’.

And heritage chiefs will be doing the same again with a free festival in the town centre tomorrow (Friday), from 2.30pm to 9pm.

Warwickshire groups including Talking Birds street entertainers, Heritage Motor Museum, Chedham’s Yard, Foundry Wood, George Elliot Fellowship Trust are among just a few of the organizations taking part.

Escape Arts will be running free family art workshops and you can also have a drumming lesson with In2Cultures.

There will also be the chance to delve into history with a tour from Warwick History Society and listen to storytelling sessions from staff at Warwickshire Libraries.

Warwick Courts, cells and dungeon will also be open for tours during the event. Tickets cost £5 each and must be booked in advance as spaces are limited. Children must be over eight and accompanied by an adult. Call 01926 412501 to book. Tours are at 3pm, 4.15pm and 5.30pm.

Rebecca Williams, from Market Hall Museum, said: “We have lots of new groups taking part and there is something for everyone to enjoy for free. We are really pleased to give groups the opportunity to ‘show and tell’ their story and have been kindly supported this year by Phillips66 and CJ’s Events.”
