Free play days at the museum this Easter

Museum of Barnstaple and North Devon

Posted on: 17 March 2016

There’s free family fun at the Museum of Barnstaple and North Devon this Easter holiday.

There will be two crafty play days on Wednesday 30 March and Wednesday 6 April from 11am to 4pm at the museum.

Children and young people can enjoy creating a host of paper crafts and decorations with a Middle Eastern theme. From traditional paper lanterns and elephant bunting, to flower garlands and palm trees, there will be plenty of things to make and take home, suitable for children (and adults!) of all ages.

The theme ties in with the museum’s current exhibition of sketches and watercolours by Devon soldier Vernon C Boyle during WW1, charting his travels from North Devon to the Middle East.

North Devon Council’s Executive Member responsible for leisure and culture, Councillor Dick Jones, says: “The museum play days in the school holidays are very popular and there’s always lots of interesting things to make and do. If you haven’t visited the museum before, then one of these play days is the ideal time to come. The current WW1 exhibition is definitely worth a visit and there is always a children’s trail around the museum to enjoy too. The best things in life are free and that includes a trip to the museum!”
