Half-term at Worcestershire County Museum at Hartlebury Castle promises to be great fun with a week long ‘Jubilation!' event celebrating all things Royal.

In honour of this very special occasion the popular half term craft activities will this year be given a Royal theme.

Between Bank Holiday Monday, 4 June and Friday, 8 June (inclusive), 10.30am-4pm, youngsters will be able to get stuck in to a whole array of colourful activities marking the Queen's Jubilee including fashioning origami crowns, creating your own coat of arms, decorating a commemorative scroll, starting a Royal scrapbook and planting some Jubilee seeds.

In addition, children will also be able to follow a 1950s themed trail around the museum's galleries where visitors can also discover over 1000 years of history including toys from the past, historic room sets and beautiful Gypsy caravans. Worcestershire County Council Visitor Experience Manager Rachel Robinson said: “It’s going to be five jolly Jubilee days at the museum with different hands on craft activities every day to keep the youngsters entertained and to allow them to make something special to commemorate this very exciting national event.”

The Museum’s Castle Kitchen Café will also be offering Jubilee special such as Coronation Cupcakes. Three different craft activities will take place each day, activities vary from day to day so please call if you would like more specific information. The Museum admission charge is £5 adults, £2.50 children/concessions or a family ticket is just £13. For a day’s activities there is an additional charge of £1 per child. Or, a Family Pass valid for 12 months is available for £32 which includes all the activities and events through the year.
