Photography Day

Join us on our Photography Day and become a MERL Model!

We are organising a photography day for publicity materials for our schools and family events programmes. We are looking for families to participate on Monday 17th February (during the school holidays). We need about 20 primary age children (6-11 years old) and several adults.

If you and your children would like to be involved, please contact Rhea Douglas at the Museum of English Rural Life. The parent/guardian must accompany the child at all times and may themselves be photographed when we do photos of family activities. We ask all participants (or parents) to sign a photography permission form. We will do our best to plan the day so that the children also have some fun! There will be some craft activities, object handling, and dressing up!

We will send a photo of each child to their parents after the event, which will be a lovely keepsake! There will also be a selection of drinks and snacks throughout the day!

Booking is essential and places are limited so please contact for more information and to book your chance of fame!
