Half Term Craft Activities

Wednesday 19th February

Join us for just £2!

Don't forget to join our volunteers on Wednesday 19th, as our ever popular craft activities return for the first time this year. This half term, you'll be able to learn how to make your own Russian dolls, scarecrows, masks, fish and plant a bulb, all for just £2 per child. Activities will take place in the Courtyard Room from 10am-2pm, and no pre-booking is required.

Please note: we request that you stay with your children during the activities.


Exhibition Trail in the Gallery

Have you had a chance to visit 'A Stroll Along Dronny Bottom in 1895' yet? If not, you've not got long left to do so, as the exhibition will be closing at 4pm on Thursday 27th February.

But before then, we'll also be holding a trail in the gallery for younger visitors to discover more about the history of Dronfield! You can down load the quiz trail here and a short picture trail. Or you can pick up a copy from one of our stewards at the Barn. The Trail is self-led and children will need the help of an adult.
