Event Type

Festival for the Future is back for a second year running! Fun for all the family, and a great way to learn tips and tricks for living a greener lifestyle. All activities are free and drop-in.

For our final festival weekend, we’ll be at the Lion Salt Works in Northwich from 10.30 – 5pm on 22 July. Barnton Circus are back with more incredible, gravity-defying performances throughout the day, and there’ll be drop-in workshops for visitors to have a go at perfecting their circus skills. Join eco-storyteller, Creeping Toad, in hunting for stories around the site, and create your own puppet characters to bring to life. Visitors of all ages can enjoy forest school activities, face painting, and spending time with nature in our onsite butterfly garden and play area.

Eco Communities will be onsite with another spectacular craft fair, so you can shop for sustainable products and learn about local sustainability projects, and Transition Northwich will be joining us with workshops and activities.

For those interested in exploring sustainable living and its role in shaping a better future, get creative with our all-ages art workshops led by illustrator India Hackett. What might a sustainable future look like in Northwich? Can art inspire positive change?

With all this and more, bring a picnic and enjoy a full day of free activities at our beautiful Salt Works site. For more information, visit www.westcheshiremuseums.co.uk or contact the Salt Works on 01606 275066.
