The Friends

Welcome to the Friends of the Weaver Hall Museum.

Our group was formed in 1999, under the Chairmanship of Murray Jones, as the Friends of the Salt Museum.

In 2007, when Murray retired, Jenny Tyson became the Chair.

In 2010, the Salt Museum was re-launched as the Weaver Hall Museum & Workhouse following the re-organisation of local government when the facilities became part of Cheshire West and Chester Council’s Museum Service.

The current Chair is Nora Dolphin who is supported by a keen and dedicated committee.

The Friends currently have over 250 members and their aim is to support the Museum and ensure that its rich heritage is safeguarded for future generations.

The Friends organise regular events at the Museum and outside venues.  They also support the curatorial staff in their work at the Museum.

You will find details of all our events on this website.

The Friends' Film Nights continue to be a great success.

A Season Ticket is available at £20, individual bookings are £4 and Friends' guests can attend for £5.

Members receive regular updates on the Museum's activity either by post or email.
