A strange package!

cigars

On Thursday 19th February a strange package arrived at the museum. Once the brown paper was unwrapped, it was revealed to be a full box of ‘Marsuma’ cigars. These hand-rolled cigars were made from Cuban tobacco by Andiamio & Co., a cigar and cigarette manufacturer located in Havannah Mill in 1900. Close examination showed an East Hertfordshire postcode; so to the person who sent this wonderful artifact, THANK YOU. And if you are, or know the person who sent them, please let us know where you acquired them – the story would be of great interest.

Congleton Museum Pub Quiz

Congleton Museum Pub Quiz – Save the Date!

Following the success of last year’s pub quiz, Congleton Museum is pleased to announce that we will be holding another quiz on the evening of Sunday 12th April at The Young Pretender, Congleton.

Tickets will cost £10 each (£8 each for Friends of Congleton Museum); included in the price is your choice of a delicious pie supper. There will also be an option to join in on the night, without supper, for £2.

Teams and individual entrants are most welcome, and it would be great for local businesses to get involved too.

Last year’s quiz was hugely popular with a total of ten teams taking part and over £350 being raised for the museum – a fantastic achievement, which we hope to match again this year.

So if you want to test your general knowledge and support the museum at the same time, then come and join us for what promises to be an excellent evening. A prize for the winning team will also be up for grabs!

To book, please email info@congletonmuseum.com and we will get back to you with further information.
