A museum aims to prove that learning can be fun with a programme of summer workshops about history.
Parents and carers are being urged to try out some of the fun activities being put on at The Museum of Cannock Chase during the school summer holidays.
The award-winning museum in Hednesford is offering a variety of free drop-in arts and crafts workshops between August 3 and 31. They are aimed at children of all ages and abilities.
The museum will also be joining forces with the Cannock Chase Council’s play rangers to celebrate National Play Day. During the day, families will be able to enjoy craft workshops, fun and games and a traditional Punch and Judy show. This event will also be free and will take place on July 31 from 11am to 4pm.
Cllr Christine Mitchell, portfolio leader for culture and sport at Cannock Chase Council, said: “The summer workshops are a fantastic way of getting children and their families to visit the museum and learn about their local history.
“The museum’s staff do a great job in engaging with local schools throughout the year, as well as hosting a number of holiday activities. It is brilliant to see so many youngsters visiting the museum.
“The workshops and play day that are scheduled over the summer holidays are all about getting children out and about, playing more, mixing with lots of different children – and getting the adults to have fun too!
“I would encourage any parent who is looking for things to do over the summer holidays to visit the museum and take part in these workshops.”
