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.
