Friends of Knutsford Heritage Centre

Knutsford Heritage Centre

2014 Quiz night at Toft Cricket Club

The Friends

The Friends of Knutsford Heritage Centre is an active group providing valuable support for the work of the Centre. The Friends raise funds through an annual subscription and fund-raising events enabling the purchase of much-needed items to enhance the centre. Recent donations have included funds for a garden shed for the cottage garden, the rebinding of rare books, special stationery to preserve archive material, a new shop heater and a time capsule to mark the 25th anniversary of the Heritage Centre.

The Friends are individuals and families who care about Knutsford and its rich heritage. They share the aims of the centre to preserve, protect and promote the historic past of the town and are able to play a role in conserving the cultural history of Knutsford for future generations.

Friends’ Events

Throughout the year The Friends organise a popular and diverse programme of fund-raising and social events. The year starts with the February Forum, a series of four weekly Saturday lunch-time talks followed by a light lunch. The talks are fully-booked and this year’s lively programme included an account of a journey into the Sahara; queens and queenship in medieval England; the life and times of George Formby and the darker side of life in Victorian Manchester.

Forthcoming Events

Wednesday 15 July: an afternoon visit to Emma Dearman’s garden in Leycester Road, including afternoon tea, and a guided walk along Legh Road, learning more about Richard Harding Watt and his Italianate villas.

Autumn visit: details to be confirmed
Tuesday 20 October 7.00 p.m: AGM and talk (tbc)
