Blists Hill Victorian Town28th March – 12th April

Over the Easter holidays take part in a variety of fun drop-in activities from dipping fabulously colourful candles and building a wall with mini-bricks to discovering Morse Code and colouring in pictures of Victorian scenes. The activities willl be staged from Saturday 28 March until Sunday 12 April; sessions take place from 10.15am-1pm and 1.30pm-4pm.

Children from five years and upwards will enjoy using liquid wax in primary colours to create striped multi-coloured candles; they can also see a full demonstration of Victorian candle making. Youngsters trying the mini-brick laying activity can learn how to build a wall using different ‘brick bonds’ to see which gives the strongest walls, afterwards they can spot the different patterns as they walk around the Town.

Over at the Post Office, they can see how telegrams would have been sent using Morse Code before tapping out their own messages on a telegraph key. Mini-brick laying and the Morse Code activities are best for the over sevens, while the Colouring Corner is for all ages, where youngsters will find paper sheets featuring images of places around the Town to be coloured-in.

During your visit you’ll also be able to chat to the Townsfolk in their shops and cottages, find out about curious remedies in the Pharmacy, see traditional skills in action at the printers, candle makers and decorative plasterers and join in the sing-a-long in the New Inn Pub.

There are plenty of places to eat at Blists Hill Victorian Town including the Fried Fish Dealers where you can buy a portion of traditionally prepared fish and chips or the Bakers where the smell of freshly baked bread is sure to tempt! Demonstrations vary from day to day and normal admission charges apply.
