Join in the fun at Aldeburgh Museum during October half term. Families can enjoy a weekend of activities and a ‘Where’s Wally?’ hunt.
October 24th and 25th is the launch of the activity book ‘Adventures of Ben and Jim – 30 fun ways to discover Aldeburgh’s heritage’, made possible with a grant from Historic England and in partnership with The Red House, home of Benjamin Britten. ‘Ben and Jim’ take children on an adventure to explore and learn about an item or story linked to Aldeburgh’s local heritage, such as the chicken headdress from Benjamin Britten’s Noye’s Fludde, or the lantern belonging to the beachman James Cable from Aldeburgh Museum, with instructions to make your own. There will also be demonstrations of activities from the book by Aldeburgh Museum and The Red House over the weekend.
One of two museums in Suffolk offering this family-friendly activity come along and search for Wally between Monday 26th to Sunday 1st November, part of the National Where’s Wally? Spooky Museum Search organised by Walker Books and Kids in Museums. Hunt for Wally amongst the displays at Aldeburgh Museum, find the spooky phrase with letters hidden alongside Wally and receive a special “I found Wally!” bookmark on completion of the search. There is also the chance to enter the Where’s Wally? and Kids in Museums grand prize draw competition to win an ArtFund Family Membership and a bundle of Where’s Wally? goodies.
Making great Christmas stocking fillers both the Activity book and Where’s Wally? Spooky Spotlight Search book will be available to purchase.
Both events are FREE with normal admission fees.
