Warrington Guardian exhibition to launch at the museum
5:00pm Saturday 7th September 2013 in News
AN exhibition featuring 160 years of history at the Warrington Guardian launches at Warrington Museum next week.
And from the sinking of the Tayluer to the Warrington bombings, it features information not just on the history of the paper, but on the town itself as well.
There will also be videos, some amazing pictures from our archives, some of our best front pages and plenty more to look at.
Nicola Priest, Warrington Guardian editor, said the display would be a great way to bring a close to the paper’s birthday celebrations.
“It has been a real landmark year for us here at the Warrington Guardian as we celebrate our 160th birthday.
“So we are extremely grateful to Warrington Museum, who themselves have more than 150 years of history to look back on, for doing so much work in making this exhibition happen.
“We are proud of our role in representing the town and I hope people enjoy what they see when they come along.”
Featured in the exhibition will also be the former Warrington Magistrate’s Court press bench, a plate from the first edition of the paper in 1853 and a whole host of anecdotes and memories.
It also looks as the changing way in which newspapers are produced and the different mediums we now use to report the events and news in the town.
Hold The Front Page, 160 years of headlines launches on Saturday, September 14 and runs until January, with free entry.
