In 2015 Warrington were bottom of the RSA’s culture list so attempting to make it the UK’s City of Culture was bold to say the least. With Fuzzy Duck’s roots being in Warrington and a few Ducks living there we felt that we could offer some support.
There were lots of nay-sayers: “Warrington for City of Culture? It’s not a City and there’s no Culture!”
But seeing as our brief was to produce some media aimed at the people of Warrington we were given free reign to use as many in-jokes and parochialisms as we wished. And so we began building key places from around the town from the Golden Gates to the Mr Smiths, referencing everything from Greenalls Bitter to Walking Day.
