Family events at Blaise this summer

Posted on by Alice Bush.

Blaise Museum is excited to launch a programme of free, family-friendly summer fun that will run throughout the school holidays.

Black a-board reads "welcome to Bristol's brilliant archaeology - information desk" in colourful chalkEvents with craft, storytelling and a whole host of other activities will take place on Wednesdays in August. Each day has a different theme connected to Blaise so look forward to butterflies, mini-beasts, toys, games and giants!

There’s some amazing archaeology over the summer too as part of the national Festival of Archaeology. Mini archaeologists can join us for Dig It, an archaeology session for the under 5s or visit Kings Weston Roman Villa for an open day filled with stories, dressing up and craft.

Bristol’s Brilliant Archaeology also returns to Blaise. This fun-packed festival brings together museum archaeologists, local societies, re-enactors, field archaeologists and heritage organisations for a day filled with archaeology activities, demonstrations and displays.

Our new Blaise residents, master crafter, Jem Dick and storyteller supremo, Michael Loader will also be joining the Blaise team this summer. Jem and Michael can be found at Blaise at various dates throughout the holidays running craft workshops and sharing stories. Both residencies will be with us for the rest of 2022 thanks to the generous support of the Friends of Bristol’s Museums, Galleries and Archives.

Three children standing at a table and inspecting the insects they've found at Blaise in the summer. Three colourful magnifying glasses lay on the table in front of them as well as a guide of insects.

And finally, when events aren’t on at Blaise, there’ll be self-led family activities laid out in the community craft room for all visitors to enjoy.

So what are you waiting for? Head over to Blaise this summer for plenty of family friendly fun!
