In a sea of bad news (or so it seems) here is some great news.
Popped in to The World Of Glass Museum, Arts and Visitor Centre earlier today. Had a chat with Ron Helsby, the Chief Executive. I was delighted to learn that visitor numbers are up on last year, Xmas meal bookings are also up on last year.
Groups of people travelling from afar for glass blowing workshops. A recent booking was from people who are travelling from Scotland. Previously people have travelled up from London for glass blowing workshops.
They regularly have visitors from across the north of England and the Midlands as well.
So much more than a “museum”!
