The afternoon will also see the debut of Crankshaft Brewery’s commemorative Ribble 100 beer.

From its founding in June 1919, Ribble grew at a rapid rate, and in just 20 years became one of the major transport operators in Britain.

The Ribble 100,1919 - 2019 exhibition runs from Saturday, January 19 to Sunday, July 7, 2019 and will use artefacts, photographs and voice recordings to tell Ribble’s story.
