The borough-based Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising are celebrating the humble jigsaw, with the largest exhibition of its kind.

From 15 December at the Museum’s Lancaster Road base, the exhibition pieces the social history of Britain through jigsaws, celebrating royal occasions, wars, transport, technology and famous faces. With 250 jigsaws from 1766 to the present day, they map the journey from an educational aide for upper class children to the family friendly brain puzzler.

The exhibition runs from 15 December to late-April 2017. Tickets cost £9 for adults, £7 concessions and £5 for children. Family tickets are also available.
