Come and join us to celebrate British Science Week with all sorts of salt science and experiments!  

Lion Salt Works Trust will be making salt in the open pan tradition and there will be a special performance of The Saltscape Sessions by Animate! and Mid Cheshire College, celebrating the salt heritage of the area.

The timetable for the day is as follows:

  • During the day, Lion Salt Work Trustees will demonstrate the centuries old tradition of boiling brine to make salt crystals -a hallmark of Cheshire’s salt industry since Roman times.
  • Salty bath bombs workshops will take place between 10.30 -12.30 and 2-4pm.
  • ‘Making Salts’ workshops and art workshop, organised by the Museum’s volunteers, will run throughout the day.
  • At 2.15pm, Animate! and a 15-strong team of Mid-Cheshire College students will perform ‘Saltscape Sessions’. Taking inspiration from the salt history of the region, this free 30-minute performance will take place in the spacious and atmospheric Thompson Suite.

There is no need to book for any of these events.

Suggested donation £1.50.
