Summer Clubs

Become a curator or a naturalist for the summer with our exciting new summer clubs for ages 10-16

Each club will run for a 2 hour session every Thursday in August and must be booked as a block and paid for in advance. This is to allow participants to develop their skills and interests over the course of the summer. On completion of the course, each participant will have the opportunity to bring family members to the Museum to show their achievements.
Young Curators Club 1pm-3pm  Find out what exactly a curators job entails and take on some of the role for yourself. Explore our collection from the behind the scenes and work together to create a tempera display for the museum.
Young Naturalists Club 10am-12pm Learn a new set of conservation and surveying skills to help our wildlife flourish and create new habitats for local wildlife, both on our grounds and for your own gardens. This will involve the use of tools such as gardening equipment.
On receipt of booking, you will receive a form to give consent for your young person to undertake the sessions without parental supervision.
