Creative activities

Tuesday 24-Saturday 28 October
10.30am-12.30pm and 1.30pm-3.30pm (last entries at 12.15pm and 3.15pm)

Delve into the National Gallery’s amazing Dutch Flowers exhibition and artist Kedisha Coakley’s response with us. Create stunning wall hangings of the fruits, seeds and bugs shown in the exhibition using block prints.

Add your creativity to Art and Energy’s giant collaborative artwork ‘Mossy Carpet’ before it’s displayed at The Theatre Royal in November. Make woolly pompoms and mossy tufts for the carpet, learn about mosses and incredible tardigrades – the toughest animals on earth.


Tuesday 24 and Thursday 26 October
Throughout the day

To celebrate Black History Month come and discover more about Jimmy Peters, the first black rugby union player to be capped for England in 1906-1908 (he was also the last black player to then play for England for a further 82 years). Our storytelling sessions with The Hidden Figures project will take place regularly throughout the day and bring his story to life for you.
