Family fun: Toys and games

Join us for some family fun this summer and explore toys and games from the past.

Search the museum to see if you can spot our friendly rocking horse, teddy bears, dolls and tin soldiers before having a go at games from different times.

There will also be creative craft with Jem Dick, our crafter-in-residence and playful stories with Michael Loader, our resident storyteller. Stories run at 11.30am, 12.30pm, 2pm and 3pm.

Blaise Community Gardens will also be open from 10am until 2pm and the Blaise Plant Nursery open from 10am until 4pm.
