This May Half Term, bring along the family and help us to celebrate the important conservation work taking place on our stained-glass windows as part of 'The Big MEND' project, with a fun new craft activity.

Join us on Tuesday 28, Wednesday 29 and Thursday 30 May, 11am - 3pm, to have a go at making your own paper-based stained-glass window to take home.

There will also be lots of traditional games out to have a go at too - Who can hoola-hoop the longest? Who can score the most points at quoits? Who has the best aim for the bean bag throw?

£1.50 per crafter per craft, normal admission costs apply, no booking required. Games are free to play. Please bring cash (change preferred please!) to pay for craft activity as we will not have the facility to take card payments at the activity area, thank you.
