Thousands of visitors got a taste of our county’s heritage and culture at The Great Warwickshire Show and Tell on Friday.
The Market square in Warwick had over 60 market stalls, all created by local community groups and associations.
A range of organisations demonstrated their offer from Warwick Boat Club who brought a “1905 sculling boat with them fully manned by four upright Victorian sporting gentlemen” through to the “Glories of the Atherstone Ball Game” (pictured right).
The Warwickshire County Council museum had been successful in becoming the winning venue for Culture 24’s national Connect 10 Museum at Night competition. Market Hall’s proposal was supported by internationally renowned artist Alex Hartley, made famous by his work with Cultural Olympiad for projects including the 2012 Olympic Games.
With the show and tell concept, no money exchanged hands. The public were able to browse the stalls and ask any questions, learning about each exhibitor.
