Half Term Activities - Wool

Half Term Activities: Wool

Half Term Activities

Head to the Museum for fantastic indoor and outdoor fun this half term with a theme focused on Wool. From Saturday, 19 February to Sunday, 27 February accompanied children of all ages can channel their energy into a range of activities, including an activity pack on arrival.

The clumsy shepherd has forgot to herd up the sheep! Can you help us by exploring the Museum grounds and locate the roaming sheep? Will you be up for the challenge? This weekend we invite you to take part in a range of activities including:

– Lost sheep trail
– Knitting
– Weaving with coloured wool
– Making your very own cotton wool sheep

If your family loves to explore, discover and learn whilst being in the fresh air, then come and embark on an adventure at the Weald & Downland Living Museum.

Activities run from 11am-3pm and will vary daily (in line with government restrictions and safety activities will be adjusted accordingly).

A programme will be released two weeks prior to this activity.

How We Are Keeping You Safe

We have been working hard to put extra safety measures in place to ensure we are COVID-19 secure and have implemented several new precautions, following government advice, so that we can provide a safe and enjoyable visit for everyone. Please see our full FAQs and guidelines.

Information for Visitors

The Museum’s 40 acres site, historic gardens and buildings are fascinating places to learn about rural history. Visitors can purchase grain from the Shepherds Hut (coffee cart) and feed the hungry ducks on the mill pond. Whilst enjoying the great outdoors and fresh air, look out for the heavy horses and other traditional breed farm animals including pigs, chickens and geese. There are a number of lovely woodland trails, including a woodland play area for children to explore.

Due to current Government restrictions, our waterside café will be open for takeaway only. Visitors can bring a picnic as there are plenty of picnic areas available on site. Takeaway refreshments will be available from our Shepherd’s Hut (coffee cart) located near the Stables. Dogs on leads are welcome and there is ample free parking. Please note that the Museum is a no-smoking site. Visitors with access needs are advised to read our accessibility page in advance of their visit.

All activities are subject to change.
