Visitors paying a trip on down to look at the exhibition will learn about trial by ordeal, trial by fire, trial by water, and trial by sacrament.

‘The court’ will be in session at 11.15am, 1.30pm, and 2.45pm throughout the Saturday – and volunteers are being sought to take part.

In a statement issued to the Free Press, a spokesperson explained that the Borough Council are ‘delighted’ to welcome Happening History back to the Museum.

Coun. Sue Markham, the Borough Council’s Portfolio Holder for Public Services, said: “Our free museum event days are very popular with many families and it’s great to have them back.

“If you’ve never visited before make sure you pop in. They are a great way for children and adults to learn something new whilst having fun.

Councillor Markham concluded: “The event is free but donations are welcome.

“There is no need to book, just drop in at the stated times. All children should be accompanied by an adult.”
