Crystal Mystery event comes to Cheshire

By on July 19, 2018

A time travelling mystery to find a magical crystal is the latest in an imaginative series of interactive adult events at Cheshire’s Lion Salt Works Museum near Northwich. The fifth in the Museum’s highly successful ‘Series of Unscrupulous Events’ programme, takes place on Saturday 21 July between 7.30pm – 10pm (doors open at 7pm). It is suitable for adults and young people and tickets cost just £7 per person. There are free light refreshments and plenty of free parking. Tickets can be booked in advance by calling the Museum on 01606 275066.

Visitors cum time travellers will follow a mysterious alchemist around the museum discovering characters from history. However, all is not what it seems. Visitors will soon become embroiled on a compelling quest – competing against each other to solve a series of riddles and puzzles and helping the alchemist to find the missing magical crystal.

Councillor Louise Gittins, Cabinet Member for Communities and Wellbeing at Cheshire West and Chester Council, said: “This is the latest in a series of highly imaginative activities being held at the Lion Salt Works Museum. Written by talented members of the Lion Salt Works team, visitors can ‘walk through time’ while enjoyably being introduced to the history of the salt works. This is exactly the sort of event that continues to put the Lion Salt Works on the map as a place to visit.”
