THE MERL FAMILY EVENT: FRUGAL FRIVOLITIES
ENJOY RECYCLING-THEMED ACTIVITIES IN THE WONDERFUL OUTDOORS!
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:
- Garden play
- Make-and-take arts and crafts including halloween mask-making
- And much more!
*some activities will be more suitable for younger or older children.
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!
- £4 per participating child, Adults free
- Booking essential
PARKING ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE EVENT
If the MERL car park is full, you can use a special parking permit to park in the University car parks on Acacia Road adjacent to the museum, or White Gates car park off Crown Place. This permit is valid during the event only from 9:30am – 1:30pm on Friday 29 October 2021.
Please collect a permit from reception at the Museum. You can also download the current permit here.
If you do not display a permit, you may be issued with a penalty. We apologise for any inconvenience, but this solution means we can continue to offer free parking in the nearby University car parks. If you have any questions, please call 0118 378 8660 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Parking is limited at the museum and although we do our best to help those who need to come by car find a space, we would always encourage you to use alternative means of transport where possible. See our Getting Here page for details.
