Activities spanning 2,000 years of history will be on offer at the Corinium Museum in Cirencester over the October half term.

The first of the sessions at the Park Street museum is called ‘Bronze Age Beakers’, which takes place on Tuesday October 28th. This workshop, aimed at children from 7-12 years old, will examine the Bronze Age period, and children will be able to make their own beaker to take away with them. It runs from 2.30pm-4pm and costs £4 for children or £2 for season ticket holders.

This is followed by a ‘drop-in’ session on Wednesday October 29th (2pm-4pm), where children can make a Victorian-style paper windmill. This event costs £1 and all children must be accompanied by an adult.

Getting to know the Roman army will take place on Thursday October 30th, where children can look at the artefacts on view in the Museum and create a Roman Centurion-style shield. This event runs from 10.30am-12pm and costs £4 per child, or £2 for season ticket holders.

On the same day, the Museum will be full of ‘Family Fun’ (2.30pm-4pm), where, as part of National Learning Week, families attending can take part in old fashioned ‘parlour games’, fun games that families played before radio, television and computers arrived.

Booking is essential for all events. To reserve a place on any of these Museum sessions, please call 01285 655611 or email the venue on [email protected]
