The Warwick Words History Fair at the Market Hall Museum on Saturday 7th October attracted plenty of visitors, many from outside Warwick who were having a day out in the town and going to the market.
There were some nice comments about Unlocking Warwick at our table in the fair, where volunteers explained our work staging various community events in the Jury Street Court House. ‘It’s really good to see the lovely ballroom being used regularly,’ said one local resident.
Others were very interested in our ‘What’s On in Warwick’, a long-term calendar of local events, which can be found on this website under ‘Events’. We hope that one or two of the visitors who live locally will consider joining our volunteer group.
The History Fair, showcasing the work of a range of Warwickshire organisations that deal with local history and heritage, was also a chance for visitors to look around the refurbished county museum, complete with its famous bear and ragged staff at the entrance.
