Easter Fun at The Almonry

Easter Fun at The Almonry

It was a busy Easter for us here at The Almonry with lots of visitors to the museum. It was lovely to hear the sounds of excited children discovering our naughty chicks hidden around the building! The keen eyed kids were brilliant at spotting  our runaways and enjoyed their chocolate rewards. Some even discovered all forty hidden chicks!

Our egg themed kids trail was popular with all ages and now we all know the difference between a blackbird’s egg and one from a platypus.

Lots of families had a great time at our craft table gluing and sticking to create some wonderful Easter bonnets and many sent in entries to our Easter Bonnet competition. Thank you to everyone who took part.

And the winner is Jacoby!

Jacoby wins a selection of Easter eggs and goodies.

Here’s his winning creation featuring a chick nest on the top.

February Half Term – Sowing Seeds for Summer

It may still be cold outside but the signs of spring are around in the Almonry garden which is bursting back to life after the winter.

Lots of young visitors braved the cold weather and the effects of  Storm Doris for some seed planting fun during February half term. They followed our Almoners Trail and discovered what he would have used in his medicines then decorated their own plant pots filled with marigold seeds ready for summer! To all those who took part, don’t forget to send us updates of your seedlings via our Twitter and Facebook pages @almonryevesham

Christmas at the Almonry 2016

A huge thanks to everyone who came to the Almonry to help us celebrate the festive season. We all enjoyed browsing the christmassy craft stalls, sampling home made cakes, singing about reindeer and listening to the “Night Before Christmas”.

We had a great day rounded off with a beautiful concert by Musyck Anon to put us all in the festive mood.
