Second Saturday

On the Second Saturday of every month, we run themed family events. A revolving programme of family activities may have you heading into the Roman Amphitheatre and hearing tales of Roman conquests or creating crafts from the Victorian paintings surrounding you. Under 12s can visit our exhibition Inspired! free of charge, and on the second Saturday of the month are also able to bring an adult in for free.

This coming Second Saturday 10 December get into the festive spirit by joining us to make beautiful Victorian style Christmas decorations, just like the ones adorning our 12ft tree. There will also be storytelling in the morning, and a family tour in the afternoon, and the costumes and building bricks will be out all day.

Find out more and book your place now.

You can join our Second Saturday session at any time between 11am to 3pm. Entry is free and included in our general admission ticket. Booking is advised but not essential.
