Brigg Heritage Centre has opened a new exhibition, where visitors can discover why rabbits were so important to the town.

“How to Pull a Hat Out Of a Rabbit” explores the rabbit fur trade and also the consequent trade in hat making.

These industries employed most of Brigg’s inhabitants in the 18th and 19th Century.

The centre will also be holding craft workshops on Saturdays during the school holidays.

The Heritage Centre in The Angel, Brigg Market Place is open Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 10am to 2pm and Saturdays from 10am to 3pm.
