GO crazy this Easter with the Mad Hatter and March Hare as the River and Rowing
GO crazy this Easter with the Mad Hatter and March Hare as the River and Rowing Museum celebrates 150 years of Alice In Wonderland.
The museum in Mill Meadows will stage a range of fun days of crafts and exploration for children aged 18 months to 15 years old, many of which are free with admission.
There is a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party from 11am to 3pm on Tuesday which includes a fancy dress competition, biscuit decorating, mad hat making and magic.
There is also Easter–themed singing and play for children aged 18 months to five years old with Taylor Tugs Holiday Happenings on Wednesday, 11am to 12.30pm. The same day, those aged 11 to 15 can explore set design and drama production in association with the Kenton theatre, in Secret Theatre from 10am to 1pm.
On Tuesday, April 7, 10.30am to 12.30pm, four– to seven–year–olds can create pom pom chicks and paper posies in a basket, and at the same time the following day there is Caterpillar Crazy for the same age group, who can make a model to show how a caterpillar turns into a butterfly.
Children aged seven to 11 can get grotesque in Gargoyles Galore, 2pm to 4pm on Wednesday, April 8, and a day later animals from Mill Cottage Farm Experience, including donkeys, rabbits and chicks, will pay the museum a visit from 10.30am to 4pm.
Adults can still catch an exhibition of work by one of the leading illustrators of the Victorian era, Arthur Rackham, until May 31, or try the poetry writing workshop run by award–winning author Jane Draycott on Saturday, April 25.
