CHRISTMAS - NEW YEAR CLOSURE

Please note that the museum will be closed during the holiday period, and won’t re-open until 11am on Saturday 3rd of February 2024. Season’s Greetings to everyone from all at the Whitworth Historical Society and Heritage Museum, and thank you for all your support during the past year, which we appreciate. We look forward to seeing you all again in 2024.

2023 WHS Open Day

November saw a repeat of the successful Whitworth Museum Autumn Open Day, when on Saturday 11th November 2023, there were servings of Lancashire specialities such as Black Peas and Parkin along with other traditional refreshments. Our thanks to everyone who came along and supported their local museum and helped us to ensure the long-term preservation of the history of the Whitworth Valley. We look forward to seeing you again at next year’s event!

The 2023-2024 Lecture Programme

We are pleased to report the return of our popular Winter Lecture Programme, which resumes in October 2023. Please note that for the 2023 -24 season we will again be holding our monthly lectures at the Hallfold United Reform Church schoolroom on Hall Street, since it has a far greater capacity than the museum, and it also allows us to provide a much better socially distanced seating plan. Full details of the current programme can be found on our lecture page
