The season started with a bang with the visit of the New Zealand High Commissioner, Sir Lockwood Smith, and his wife on the first day of opening! Our programme of activities kicks off on Tuesday 21st February with -
Eruption - create your own Krakatoa!
Create your own erupting volcano in this crazy science workshop for kids. Drop in 1100-1600. £1 or free with museum entry.
Special Events programme
A special events programme during the holidays, half terms and on certain Saturdays takes place throughout the year - details to be posted shortly!
Meanwhile, throughout the season there are activity cards to 'Make your Mark!', a special Museum trail sheet, and occasional story telling, as well as the special events programmed.
Last season, expert embroideress and textile historian Alison Larkin appeared several times. In period costume made by herself according to traditional methods, Alison demonstrated the skills and type of embroidery which Mrs. Cook did so well.
Alison added a special touch to activities in the Museum and we look forward to welcoming her back on two Saturdays, the 15th April and 22nd July 2017.
