Roll up! Roll up! The Mechanical Circus has come to town! Join us for the launch of our fantastic summer exhibition, where you can try your hand at a range of exciting circus skills and get hands-on with a range of fun creative crafts.
Have fun with the kids and let their creativity lead the way. Lead by a local artist, drop in and see what you can make from her box of scrap materials.
Make a colourful keyring or door hanger, using wooden shapes and endless embellishments.
Exercise your artistic and engineering skills while learning some basics about the science of mechanical movement in this creative technology workshop. Using a mix of pre-made parts, chopsticks, a box, and a load of art and craft materials, you can make a moving toy or automata that bursts into life at the turn of a handle.
Kids can come and let their imagination run wild playing with our collection of LEGO® & DUPLO® bricks. Take a breather and watch a mess build that they won’t have to clear up!
