This month’s Wirral History Fair is the biggest local heritage event to date with record numbers of participants gathering in Port Sunlight for one day of history, heritage, family trees, and memorabilia.
The Fair takes place on Saturday 25 March 2023 at Hulme Hall, Port Sunlight in celebration of local history and heritage. Entry is free, doors open to the public at 10am and close at 4pm.
Paul Smith of the Wirral History and Heritage Association (WHHA) said, “We have had record bookings for exhibitors at this year’s Fair which demonstrates the wealth of interest in the history of our peninsula and the popularity of the topic to local people.
“In one place, on one day you can delve into your family history, explore the story of your house, join or volunteer for one of the active local groups, share your memories, explore archaeology, the Vikings, the Victorians, the World Wars and see vintage vehicles, plus so much more.
“Expect to learn more about the Wirral, the people, our ancestors and the incredible work that goes on behind the scenes locally to share, save and record our histories.”
At this year’s fair, there are over 90 tables of history societies, new and second-hand books, family history, local history exhibitions, historical memorabilia plus vintage vehicles outside.
The venue has free parking, refreshments and level access.
