This major exhibition will explore Carlisle's development during the Georgian period (1714 – 1836) and analyse a period of immense social change that transformed Carlisle from a medieval to a modern city.
Visitors will also be able to see the national context of a period that brought the industrial revolution and growth of the British Empire. The display will contain a range of artefacts and primary documents from the Georgian era.

This summer we're laying on a sensory feast for all the family to enjoy. This striking, hands-on exhibition of ceramics by Hereford-based maker, Jon Williams, has been inspired by the five senses: touch, taste, sound, smell and sight.
From tiny handheld items to huge musical pots, visitors can touch and explore all the objects on display to find out more about the materials used to make them.
