Summer 2022 Make It Craft Sessions

This summer we have 5 weeks of Make it craft activities.  We also have a new exhibition all about the history of Pants! To link to this the Wednesday activity each week will have a pants theme, linked to different children’s stories that have a pants theme.  Other crafts will be linked to our other collections and galleries.

Tickets available via links below.  (£3 per child per activity – booking recommended)  Each week has it’s own page.

Ticket sales end at 11.30pm the day before the session.  Remaining tickets will be available on the day at reception.

There will also be themed trails around the museum with collectable badges as prizes. (£1 per child – pay at the desk)
