Lego and Beer! – A Lego workshop for grown ups @ Weston Museum
Jun 20 @ 18:30 – 20:30
Why should kids have all the fun? Come along and join in with some Lego building that is just for grown ups, led by the brilliant team from Gincandescence.
 
Enjoy a selection of local beers and wines, plus spirits, from our bar, whilst building all sorts of crazy creations from a mountain of lego available for you to rummage through. There will also be lots of snacks available should you feel peckish.
 
There will be contests and awards on the night for those of a competitive nature, but if you just fancy letting your imagination wander, then that’s fine too.
 
This event is for ages 16 and upwards, but you must be 18 to enjoy the alcohol (we have lots of soft drinks too). The museum operates a Think 25 policy, so we may ask for ID.
 
£4 per person (this covers your lego building activities, but sadly not your bar tab, sorry!).
 
To book a place (numbers are limited), just pop in to the museum or call us on 01934 621028.

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.
