The centre of Warwick will once again be transformed into public exhibition of the county’s cultural heritage.

Last year the Market Hall Museum in Warwick won the national Museums at Night Connect 10 competition, and put on The Great Warwickshire Show and Tell in the town centre,

And after its success, the heritage and culture team at Warwickshire County Council will be bringing it back again on May 15.

As with last year, it will be a public exhibition with more than 50 exhibition spaces which will all be curated by local people. A county council spokesperson for the event said: “The aim of the event is to represent the full scope of Warwickshire’s diverse communities, heritage and culture.”

Community groups and organisations are invited to have a stall and display what defines them and what role they have in the county.

There are a limited number of free market-style stalls available in the Market Place and a number of other non-stall based spaces for performers. Anyone interested should email rebeccalwilliams@warwickshire.gov.uk
