The Wire Works
A heritage project which celebrates the legacy left by the wire industry, which dominated Warrington’s employment structure for over a hundred years in the 18th and 19th centuries, putting the town at the forefront of the Industrial Revolution. It is a collaboration between National Lottery Heritage Fund, Warrington Borough Council, Culture Warrington and Warrington-based creative media and acting studio, Ludovico. This culture and heritage project will give local people new opportunities to tell their stories, and raise awareness of the significance of this industry to Warrington’s identity. Information about the project and links to activities to do at home can be found:
Technically Brilliant’s 2020Vision exhibition in Golden Square is temporarily closed but there will be daily posts about the individual exhibiting artists and their work. A ‘virtual exhibition’ is available on their website, with a thumbnail of each artist’s work available to view.
