NUNEATON MUSEUM are inviting families and children to join them to take part in their free ‘egg-citing’ Easter activities, and marvel at their ‘fantastic’ exhibitions.
The Museum and Art Gallery, based inside of Riversley Park, is playing home to a whole host of activities both this week and next week, which started today (4 April).
Families can simply drop in and take part between 10.30am to 3.30pm, as no prior booking is needed.
The complete list of events as follows:
• Tuesday, 4 April – Create a top hat or a 1920’s headband
• Wednesday, 5 April – Colour a carnival queen or king headband
• Thursday, 6 April – Create a pirate hat and eye patch
• Monday, 10 April – Make a bookmark to celebrate Nuneaton’s famous daughter, George Eliot.
• Tuesday, 11 April – Cat and dog Masks
• Wednesday, 12 April – Penguin finger puppets
• Thursday, 13 April – Butterfly
Coun. Sue Markham, the Borough Council’s Portfolio Holder for Public Services, said: “If you are stuck for something to do over the Easter break, why not come to the Museum and get the family involved in creative activities?
“There is something different to do each day from creating hats, masks and bookmarks, all free to attend. It will also give you the opportunity to see some of the fantastic exhibitions currently on show.’’
Temporary exhibitions include “Where Did You Get That Hat?”, featuring headwear from the museum’s collections, and giving visitors the chance to try on fun hats and decorate their own.
And as we reported last month, the ‘Nuneaton Festival of Arts’ is being held, featuring over 400 pieces of art, which may be “the biggest exhibition yet”.
The Museum is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (4, 5 and 6 April) from 10.30am until 4.30pm and is closed on Good Friday (7 April).
Then, it is open on Easter Saturday (8 April) from 10.30am until 4.30pm, closed Easter Sunday (9 April), and open Easter Monday (10 April) from 10.30am to 4.30pm.
