Royal Wedding Celebrations

A family activity day to celebrate the Royal Wedding.

A family activity day at the museum on Monday 7 May 2018, 10am to 2pm, will celebrate the Royal Wedding.

Discover a wide range of self directed activities. There will be kids crafts linked to marriage and royalty. Make your own flag, bunting and crown, or have a go at designing a wedding dress, groom's outfit and wedding cake. Design and make congratulations cards, which the museum will then send off to the happy couple. There will also be a pin the tail on the corgi competition.

The museum has delved into its archives to create a display of both local and royal wedding pictures through time. Discover how the themes and fashions have changed over the years. Wimborne Library will be providing a selection of Royal Wedding books, which can be flicked through at leisure.

The Garden Tea Room will be serving light savoury snacks, delicious cakes, cream teas and drinks. There will be a special offer on the day of a hot drink and slice of cake for £3.50.

Admission is £1.75 per person (annual ticket not valid), which includes entrance to the museum and garden. All children must be accompanied.

For further information please contact the museum.
