Sunday Funday


This annual event is a special day when the children from toddlers upwards can experience the atmosphere of a fete and Sunday School picnic rolled into one.

The Organiser says the event with its traditional games and races is always enjoyed by the children, even in this computer and TV age, while mums, dads and grandparents will be transported back to their own childhoods.

Encouraged by the museum's enthusiastic band of volunteers, youngsters can take part in quizzes, clay modelling, leaf and vegetable painting, flowerpot decorating, peg doll dressing and jewellery making. They can even try their hand at wood turning on the foot-operated pole lathe.

For children who need to run off some energy, there will be plenty of energetic activities on offer, too, everything from the traditional coconut shy and bobbing for apples (always a great hit) to races, skittles and a treasure trail. If the weather's wet, there will be traditional indoor games in the museum's many attractive old buildings. All the day's activities are included in the price of admission to the museum.

Adults can take along a picnic or buy tasty food at the Old Kiln Café.

Normal opening time and entry prices apply. For more information please see the Visiting Us page
