Plenty going on at Bromsgrove's Avoncroft Museum in the school summer holidays

THERE will be plenty of fun for all the family at Bromsgrove’s Avoncroft Museum during the summer holidays.

The venue has six weeks’ worth of themed activities, starting with The Great Outdoors which launches with the ever-popular family camping event next Friday, July 19 to celebrate the start of the summer break.

Bug hunts, animal trails, forest school, tree identification, make your own woodland critter and pond-dipping are among the activities.

That will be followed by Bygone Buildings week, which will include activities such as Lego construction, brick-making, buildings in art, build a Tudor house and construction trails.

Week three focuses on Historical Hygiene and discovering how people lived (and smelled) hundreds of years ago!

Visitors can make their own soap in the Tudor town house, make nosegays, enjoy a Victorian washing display, discover privies of the past and present and learn about the differences between rich and poor hygiene in bygone times.

The themes will then be repeated in the final three weeks of the holidays, in case anyone missed them!

As well as all this, the model train will be running every Tuesday to Thursday and there will be pony rides on selected days too, for an additional fee.

Why not purchase an annual membership and enjoy the six weeks of summer fun for just £55?

Alternatively, the Museum’s general admission fees apply and doors open from 10.30am until 5pm everyday throughout the summer holidays.
