The six-times award-winning Lion Salt Works Museum will celebrate its first anniversary, in style, with a free science-themed birthday party running from 10.30am to 4pm.

Coinciding with the Cheshire-wide ‘Amazed by Science’ festival, the first birthday weekend will feature lots of free family fun, including an imaginative Science Ceilidh on Saturday afternoon.

Admission charges to the Museum will still apply during the weekend but all activities will be free of charge and will not require entry to the museum to be enjoyed.

Events include:

  • A chance to explore ‘Saturn’, an historic narrowboat moored adjoining the Museum
  • Guided walks with Northwich Woodlands through the salt landscape and by the canal (10.30am/1.30pm)
  • Bug hunt and other activities with Butterfly Conservation in the Museum’s Butterfly Garden
  • Salt-making demonstrations by the Lion Salt Works Trustees
  • Activities staged by the Catalyst Discovery Centre in Warrington
  • A free family-friendly Science Ceilidh between 1.30pm 3.30pm
