May Half Term at Moseley Old Hall
There is plenty to explore at Moseley Old Hall this half term. From climbing a tree hide fit for a king to seeing what's cropping up in our kitchen garden.
There is plenty to see and do all week for people of all ages, and this will be the last chance to see this year’s wonderful maypole in person.
This is a great opportunity to complete some of the 50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾ by building a den, making a mud pie and climbing a tree (hide).
On bank holiday Monday, make a paper flower garland to take home and have a go at some 17th century games. You might even be able to pick up a jar or Moseley-made jelly or cheese to take home.
In 1660, to celebrate Charles II's Return to his Parliament, 29th May was made a public holiday, popularly known as Oak Apple Day. Incidentally this was also His Majesty's birthday. We will be celebrating this year by wearing a sprig of oak, and children can mark the occasion too by decorating their own paper crown and making the king a birthday card.
