Living History – World War Two @ Weston Museum
May 29 @ 10:00 – May 31 @ 17:00
Living History - World War Two @ Weston Museum | England | United Kingdom
During Living History, you will have the chance to meet reenactors, who will show how life was during the Second World War, with the opportunity to meet some German troops as well as British troops.
 
The café will be offering a selection of WW2 themed ration recipes and the shop has some vintage style souvenirs and gifts.
 
Kids can also have a go at some transport themed sand art, alongside some WW2 themed craft activities in the Learning Space, with pieces ranging from planes, to trains and tanks. The craft activities will include colouring in, alongside some activities and games that would’ve been played during the war. These activities will take place on the Tuesday and Thursday between 10am and 2pm.
 
There is the chance to share your family’s short stories and photographs from the Second World War; do you have any family stories or memories that could add to our display? Email sophie.sanford@wsm-tc.gov.uk for more information (please note, items must be 2D and be copies not originals).
 
The museum is free entry all year round. This event will take place in our lovely covered courtyard area, and you do not need to book for this event, but some activities taking place in the Learning Space will have a small charge.

Puppetry Workshops for Families @ Weston Museum
Aug 15 @ 10:30 – 16:00
Puppetry Workshops for Families @ Weston Museum | England | United Kingdom

Get inspired by our exhibition on Punch and Judy and make your own puppet to take away and create your own shows with! Join in with a craft workshop where there will be loads of materials to use and a puppetry artist on hand to show you how to make your own fantastic puppet.

Workshops last for 1.5 hours and available slot timings are:

  • 10.30 – 12
  • 12.30 – 2
  • 2.30 – 4

Activities are suitable for children aged 4-10, smaller craft materials mean that the workshops are not suitable for children aged 3 or younger. We have regular toddler groups for them instead, run on a monthly basis.

Tickets cost £5 per child. Parents do not need to purchase a ticket for themselves, they can either stay with the child (advisable for younger children) or stay in the museum cafe, which is within eye line and earshot of the Learning Space and enjoy a cuppa whilst their children enjoy some craft. To book a place please call the museum on 01934 621028 or drop in. Places need to be booked in advance as numbers are limited and we ask for payment at the time of booking, which you can pay in cash or on card if you drop in or you can pay by card over the phone.
