WEAVER Hall Museum and Workhouse are hosting a wide range of activities during the summer holidays.

Taking place on August 1 and 2, children can prepare for battle by designing and creating their own shield.

The following week, on August 8 and 9, artists such as Picasso, Monet and Lowry take centre stage for art-themed activities.

Roman pottery is the focus of the activities running on August 15 and 16, with youngsters being invited to see some of the 2000-year-old exhibits in the museum before having a chance to make their own.

On August 22 and 23, clay tiles from the medieval period are in the spotlight, with some that were saved from the first Vale Royal Abbey on display. Children can then design their own

Hopefully the sun will be shining for the teddy bears picnic on August 24.

Families will need to bring your own picnic and teddy bear for a fun-filled afternoon of storytelling and crafts.

Rounding off the summer, on August 29 and 30, children can go along to the museum and build a model of their favourite historical site or favourite holiday visit.

All of these activities are free to attend and will start at 10am and run until 4pm at the museum in London Road.
