Only three miles from Worcester’s city centre, the Elgar Birthplace Museum in
Lower Broadheath is holding a children’s art workshop on Friday 3rd June celebrating the wildlife of the Worcestershire countryside. Families will be encouraged
to decorate Animal Masks, make Flapping Butterflies and design Model Owls!
This event is Free with museum admission and is a drop in event from 11am to 4pm.
Further information about the Museum and the full events programme can be found on the museum’s website under Events at www.elgarmuseum.org.
The museum will also be running a Countryside Trail throughout half term week for children aged 6 and above, where families have to find images of birds and animals in exhibitions and plants in the Gardens. The trail will lead families through the Elgar Centre museum and Birthplace Cottage on a quest to win a small prize!
Alex Chatwood, Administrator at the Elgar Birthplace Museum said “After the huge success of our last art workshop, we wanted to create an engaging and fun day for families to get creative and enjoy learning about the Worcestershire countryside which Elgar loved.”
