Easter, come rain or shine…
April 2, 2014
Whether it’s egg-hunting or bonnet-making or just the sheer joy of having two weeks off school, we can all cast our minds back over Easters past and find a fond memory or two. So what better way to help your kids make some fond memories of their own than to bring them to Bath?
Family Fun at The American Museum – on the 10th and 17th April 2014 admission to the American Museum will include the chance to make some music or get crafty with workshops for the whole family to enjoy. Don’t be shy!
If you’re thinking of visiting the Victoria Art Gallery on 10th or 11th April, bring the kids along to ‘Go Quackers’ and ‘Down on the Farm’ where they can make Easter and farmyard-themed crafts while you take in the Victoria’s beautiful collection. Places cost £4 per child (including a glass of squash and a biscuit!) and should be booked in advance.
The Holburne Museum’s Explosive Easter Eggstravaganza promises ‘a cracking good time!’ on Sunday 13th April, with a series of activities exploring where art and science collide, to celebrate World Heritage Day – look out for other events around the city, including the mustering of Roman Legionaries on the green below the Royal Crescent!
Hands on Archaeology at The Roman Baths on 16th April is a great opportunity to get a feel for the lives of the ancient Romans by handling some of the artefacts from the Roman Baths collection.
From 10th to 12th April the Egg theatre presents Not Now, Bernard, a play about a boy, a monster and two busy parents saying “Not now, Bernard!” Based on the picture book by David McKee, little monsters aged two and up – not to mention those of us who remember the book and McKee’s other iconic creations, including Mister Benn – will love it!
And if you fancy heading a bit further afield, take a trip to the Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton. From 7th to 21st April there will be a variety of family activities on offer, including Easter Trails that could earn you a tasty chocolate prize; and on 16th and 17th April the museum plays host to the Robo Challenge ‘Robot Wars’ event, where you can see custom built ‘bots battle it out in the arena and take part in a family robot-building workshop!
Whatever you choose to do this Easter holiday, come rain or shine, we look forward to seeing you at Three Abbey Green.
