Thanks for your interest in adopting me! But I’ve already been adopted. I’m so excited!
Do you know anyone who tells tall tales? Well if so, I reckon I am the perfect gift for them!
I am the Liar’s Medal, given out to the best, most audacious liar as the prize in a lying competition. There’s a long tradition of lying competitions here in East Anglia, all held at pubs and clubs across the region. Participants competed to tell the most entertaining lies to a gathered audience, with the winner chosen by an expert panel of judges.
I am quite a demanding object for the Museum to look after- because I am made from metal, which corrodes easily if it gets damp, I must be kept dry at all times and in a room with moderate humidity. This is quite a challenge in a building that’s over 400 years old!
Adopt me now to help care for me and gift the liar in your life a gift to remember.
