Hands-On Half-Term

February 22 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Ever fancied becoming a Victorian house servant or training as a country garage apprentice mechanic? Now’s your chance!

Join us from February 15th – 23rd to get hands-on with a range of fun activities, including the chance to discover curious 19th century gadgets and motoring artefacts…

Try out as a footman or scullery maid and tackle some of the household chores that were part of daily life for the hard-working servants. If that sounds like hard work, test your brain in a different way with curious gadgets from the 19th century, putting your deductive skills to the test to work out what these strange contraptions were used for.

For more dress-up, rummage through the collection of driving costumes and pull on coats, hats and goggles before clambering behind the wheel of the veteran 1904 Pope-Tribune for the perfect selfie opportunity.
