This summer, West Cheshire Museums is throwing a festival across all four Museum sites in Chester, Malpas, and Northwich. Working with Eco Communities, Weigh of the World, Cheshire West and Chester Council, and a fantastic network of community partners, we’ve put together an exciting programme of activities for each festival weekend in July.

Explore the impacts of plastic pollution through an Augmented Reality exhibition and enjoy a whole host of special events, performances, family activities, litter picks, clothes swaps, pub quizzes, outdoor yoga and much, much more!

We'll add more details here over the coming weeks so keep checking back for the latest updates.

Be part of the festival!
