Death and the Working Class, opening Saturday 23 October

Don't miss our next changing exhibition, Death and the Working Class, opening with a spectacular launch day this Saturday 23 October.  A 1933 Austin hearse will be on display, a horse drawn hearse will tour the city centre, The Co-operative Brass Band from Crewe will be performing and there will even be a coffin making demonstration!  Running until Monday 2 May 2011, this exhibition looks at the enormous changes in perceptions of death and funeral customs over the last 200 years, with fascinating collections illustrating the world of 'the good send off'. Supported by The Co-operative Funeralcare.
