Through the Door Family Festival

Saturday 29 July to Sunday 30 July 2017
10.30am - 5pm

Imagine, play, create, explore – come and uncover what’s through the door! This exciting new family festival will offer children and their families the opportunity to run wild with their imagination – through woodland trails, funfair rides, climbing wall, circus skills, art workshops and more!

Bring your teddy bear along and join the Museum’s teddy bears’ picnic.

Join DD Storyteller for a mini mystery that will entertain and inspire. Knock on the doors to discover familiar woodland animals and magical creatures, in original stories for 3 – 8 year olds. Come on a journey to solve the mystery behind the pot of missing gold and follow the trail to the orchard apples.

We are excited to announce that the 3SIXTY bicycle stunt team will be attending the event with 4 displays each day.

Watch this space – details to follow!
