Winter Half-Term Family Activities

Monday 16 February to Friday 20 February 2015

Put on your winter woolies and wellies, and warm up with a week of creative activities and countryside skills, including outdoor trails, arts and crafts to inspire all of your family!

Wet weather will not spoil play as we have plenty of areas under cover. Activities will include:

  • Make a bird pudding
  • Weaving
  • Rag rugging
  • Badge making
  • Lino printing
  • Winter scavenger hunt
  • Victorian household chores

The Museum’s historic buildings are fascinating places to explore. Learn how food was prepared without modern technology in the Tudor kitchen. See how our watermill works using a very topical natural resource and buy a bag of grain for the hungry ducks on the millpond! Look out for the Shire horses and cattle, and the traditional breed farm animals including sheep, chickens and geese.

Most activities are under cover and will run from 11am – 3pm. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. The lakeside café will be open, plus there are indoor and outdoor picnic areas. Dogs on leads are welcome and there is ample free parking. Please wear clothes and shoes that are suitable for playing outdoors.

Regular admission charges apply and the Museum will open at 10.30am and close at 4.00pm.
