It was lovely to welcome so many visitors to the museum this weekend for the start of our two-week programme of events for October Half Term. (See details below.)
In addition to the activities, there’s a Battle of Britain trail which takes place every day over the half term holidays – answer all the questions correctly and win a model plane. Also watch out for the launch of our Where’s Winston? activity. Can you and your family discover where our mini Winston Churchill is hiding in the museum?
See below for a full list of session details and dates. To book your place, please email [email protected] specifying the workshop you want to attend, the number of people attending (children and adults) and the age of each child.
