Easter at Erewash Museum
Cute, cuddly and creepy animals from White Post Farm will be paying a visit to Erewash Museum during the Easter holidays.
The event, on Thursday 29th March, is just one of many exciting events taking place during the Easter school holidays at the museum, which regularly holds arts and crafts activities for children. From 26th to the 30th March there will be activity hunts and colouring. Children will also be able to enjoy mask making on the Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.
An event that will prove popular with Lego fans is Blocks and Bricks, which will be held every day from 3-7 April. It will include Lego ‘building stations’ and children will be able to hunt for Lego characters around the house.
Councillor Mike Wallis, lead member for culture and leisure, says:
“The White Post Farm event is always hugely popular with families. Last year the Blocks and Bricks event was held for the first time and proved extremely popular. This year it will be held on the Saturday too so that parents who work in the week can attend and join in the fun. It is set to be two very busy and exciting weeks at Erewash Museum this Easter.”
The Easter events take place between 11am-3pm. The White Post Farm event takes place from 10.30am until 3.30pm and costs £1.50 for children over the age of two. On Saturday 24th March the museum is also taking part in a nationwide event. Get Creative encourages everyone to be more creative. Artist Jackie Ward from Treehuggery will be on hand to help visitors make a mobile out of recycled materials, using local buildings and words as inspiration.
Erewash Museum is in Ilkeston town centre, a short walk from the Market Place. Opening hours are Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10am-4pm, and Monday to Saturday during school holidays.
