The Fun Doesn’t Stop at Royston Museum

There’s no stopping just because the summer holidays are over!

Children at Royston Museum's Arts Festival

From 18th – 27th September, Royston will be “lit up” with activities as part of the annual Arts Festival.  This year the theme is “Illumination”.  The museum will be joining in by asking you to get involved with its Big Make.  Join us on Saturday 19th to help paint some giant light bulbs which will brighten up and illuminate the museum.

Then come back on Saturday 26th for more illuminating craft activities.  Events are taking place across Royston so why not plan a day trip and see more of the town.

Our hugely popular Toddler Dance Workshops start up again after a summer break. Led by a professional dance teacher, the group of youngsters and their carers take inspiration from objects in the museum.  One recent workshop got them hunting for animals before imagining how the animals might dance around.  Demand for these is so great that we’ve added a second date each month!  This month the dates are Friday 11th and 25th September.

Following the success of our summer Crafty Wednesdays, we’ll be getting creative again during October half term.  On Wednesday 28th we’ll be leaving Earth far behind and blasting off into space! Create your own rocket, imagine what alien life you might discover and design an alien flying saucer.

Then on Saturday 31st we come back to Earth for some spooky Halloween crafts. Our museum is said to be haunted. Dare you join us to see what you might discover lurking in dark corners!
