Open day is a chance to step back in time

TAKE a step back in time this Sunday at the Warwick and District Historical Society Pringle Cottage Museum open day.

The day of historical discovery is held in conjunction with this year's Heritage Festival 2014 which runs from April 18 - May 18.

The Historical Society will be holding a number of stalls with bric-a brac, crafts, handmade timber items preserves, as well as a big plant sale.

A giant book sale will also be held in the museum's Eastwell-Leslie Hall.

There will be a number of demonstrations: the Spinners and Weavers, the whip makers, a lace maker and wood workers using hand tools, one of the days biggest draw cards.

Hungry history hunters can fill up at the sausage sizzle.

The print museum is on permanent loan from the Daily News which is celebrating its 150 year anniversary will show the printing press once worked.

There will be someone available who can answer most of your questions.

Volunteers will be on hand to answer any questions.

 When: Sunday, 10am - 3pm

 Where: 79 Dragon Street Warwick

 Cost: $2 entry.
