Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: have fun and be inspired!

The family events team at the museum have always set themselves the challenge to be as environmentally low-impact as possible. Come along and have fun discovering ways to turn something discarded into something cherished to take home with you through creative crafts, trails and fun play in the MERL garden.

We will also have information for families around the upcoming COP26 discussions and how you can have a say.

Sessions are suitable for families with children aged 3 – 11* and will include:

  • Storytime
  • Garden play
  • Trail
  • Make-and-take arts and crafts including halloween mask-making
  • And much more!

*some activities will be more suitable for younger or older children.

Costume Swap:

Bring along an unwanted spooky costume and see if you can exchange it with or donate it to another family! Alternatively, you are welcome to just come along in your Halloween fancy dress.

All children must be accompanied by an adult and we encourage parents/carers to assist with all activities.

As this is an OUTDOOR EVENT please ensure you dress for the weather. Picnics are welcome!
