About

Using a mix of real and replica historical objects from the Museum's handling collection, our workshops provide families with a hands on experience where they learn more about the history of the local area, develop new skills by having a go at arts and craft activities, and spend quality time together.

Workshops are aimed at children aged 5-11 years old. For children aged 11 and over, we can make the activities more challenging for them. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. If younger siblings (under 5s) are coming as well and not taking part in the main craft activity, we can provide colouring materials for them free of charge, as the workshop charges are to help us cover the cost of craft materials. When booking, please book places for adults and under 5s, as this lets us know how many chairs we need to put out for the workshop.

Summer Holidays: A Horse! A Horse! My Kingdom for a Horse!

Edmund Kean a celebrated British Shakespearean stage actor. Discover how he used to run a Theatre here in Richmond and how he ended up with a memorial in St Mary Magdalene's Church.
