Yuletide Family Fun Days are back! Following on from the success of last year, we are delighted to invite families to celebrate the festive Yuletide season with us. 

Our Family Fun Days take place on Saturday 9 and Saturday 16 December, 11am - 3pm. Enjoy storytelling, face painting, craft activities and our popular Christmas Gnome Hunt, with prize. Plus lots more to see and do.

Join professional storyteller, Dawn Nelson, to welcome in the winter and celebrate the Yuletide season with tales of trolls, treasure and snow. A feast of folktales to delight and entertain told for hundreds of years and passed down through the generations.

Storytelling sessions last approximately 20 minutes and are suitable for families with primary aged children. Sessions will take place at 11.30am, 12.30pm and 2pm.

There will be a small charge of £2.50 for face painting and £2 for the trail. All other activities are free and donations welcome. Admission to the museum is free. No need to book, just drop in.

Our Family Fun Day will be followed by Carols in the Courtyard at 3pm, with mince pies, mulled wine and hot chocolate.
