Councillor Loraine Rossati, Portfolio Holder for Culture and Leisure said
“We’ve got four weeks of fun activities planned at Stevenage Museum, and each has its own theme, so there should be something to suit everyone.”
Book by calling 01438 218881 or email Stevenage Museum. The sessions are usually very popular, so please book in advance. If for any reason you can no longer make it, please let the Museum know so that someone else can use the space.
The annual Railway Day is also taking place on Saturday 5 August, from 11am - 4pm. Entry is free. The event will feature a number of layouts from local clubs.
The museum is free to attend and is open Wednesday-Friday 10am - 4.30pm, and 10am - 5pm on Saturdays.
