The Rylands is pleased to present a day of free activities inspired by the stories of culture, community and resilience from industrial Lancashire featured in our Workers’ Playtime exhibition.
Join us for a tour of the exhibition that goes beyond the factories to explore how workers aspired for better lives and creative expression through political, economic, and cultural self-organisation in Lancashire’s historic urban communities. Explore collections that bring to life the clubs, societies and traditional leisure pursuits of local working-class people. Come and see our Columbian printing press in action and collect a freshly printed page of Lancashire dialect poetry, as we explore the life and work of dialect poet, performer, and cartoonist Sam Fitton.
All activities are free to drop-in, no booking required.
