Half term fun at Walsall Leather Museum

Trick or TreatHalloween themed workshops for children take place at Walsall Leather Museum during the half term break later this month.

On Tuesday 25 October Ruth Turnbull will be leading a Halloween themed workshop helping youngsters make their own trick or treat t-shirts. Times are 10.30am – 12.30pm for five to seven-year-olds (who must be accompanied by an adult) and 1.30 to 3.30pm for eight to 12-year-olds. Cost is £1.50.

A day later on Wednesday 26 October the Halloween theme continues with a children’s activity event where youngsters can learn how to make their own creepy spider. The event is free, no booking required, and runs from 10.30am to 12.30pm or 1.30 to 3.30pm.

Francesca Cox, assistant leather museum curator, said: “Halloween is the theme of this half term’s workshops and, once again, we look forward to welcoming lots of children through our doors.

“The school holiday workshops are always well supported but we would also remind people that the museum itself is open as normal during this half term for anyone interested in finding out more about the leather industry.”

The museum is open from Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 5pm. For more information about events call 01922 721153.
