Knutsford Heritage Centre raising funds for King Canute Sculpture

Knutsford Heritage Centre is hoping to raise enough funds to commission local sculpture, Andy Burgess, to create a life-size sculpture of King Canute.

The much-loved King Street-based centre is already home to ‘The Green Man,’ and to a selection of May Day crowns and memorabilia. Now it wants to add the sculpture to its attractions.

Knutsford Tapestry

Centre manager, Val Bryant said: “We are home to a small but interesting exhibition hall filled with all things Knutsford-related but having a sculpture of King Canute would be the icing on the (May Day) crown.”

The centre is already raising funds via a private tour and talk by Lord Ashbrook of Arley Hall on May 10th, with tickets available via the centre at £25 per person.

Any further donations will be welcome.

The centre opens Fridays and Saturdays from 11.00am for anyone wishing to donate, no matter how small.

Val added: “We know things are difficult at present, but all donations are welcome. We know this sculpture will be a real draw to the centre and help tourism and footfall in our town centre. This all helps to keep our market town alive.”
