Things are hotting up again at The World of Glass this weekend, when its team of glassblowers will be back in action from Saturday 13th January to delight visitors with their skills again after the rebuild of the glass furnace.
There is also a great new offer for residents of St Helens to enjoy the full World of Glass experience to start the celebrations of the 150th anniversary of the town.
If you are a St Helens resident you can visit The World of Glass for Just £1.50, all you need to do is provide something showing your postal address to enjoy the full range of facilities, and the offer is for up to six people.
Ron Helsby, Chief Executive of The World of Glass, said “We know that at the beginning of the year money can be tight but this offer means six people can visit for £9.
“Many people already regularly visit the centre’s three free art exhibition galleries, to eat and drink in St Helens only canal-side café or enjoy some retail therapy in the Artisan gift shop.”
“The drastically reduced offer ( saving up to £18 for a family of four) means that you will be able to see the recently updated museum galleries, enjoy the daily live glassblowing demonstrations, watch the amazing three screen film show, explore the Victorian furnace and tunnels and visit the fascinating mirror maze.”
Hannah Billinge, curator said “We see this as an exciting new opportunity for local people in particular.We have such a rich collection in our two major galleries – that sometimes people don’t realise how influential St Helens was in the industrial revolution.”
“She added, The town isn’t just coal, glass and rugby. We had potteries, chemical works, pharmaceuticals and iron foundries. They all created the rich tapestry of a hard working town.”
In the towns anniversary year why not make your 2018’s resolution to be a visit to The World of Glass and find out about the unchampioned people and industries that made St Helens renowned world wide.
