Dig for Victory – Richmond during World War Two

Using a mix of real and replica historical objects from the Museum’s handling collection, our workshops provide families with a hands on experience where they learn more about the history of the local area, develop new skills by having a go at arts and craft activities, and spend quality time together. In this workshop find out how and why the people of Richmond would 'Dig for Victory' during World War Two and create your own cress head to take home. Workshops are primarily aimed at children aged 5-11 years old. For children aged 11 and over, we can make the activities more challenging for them. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. If younger siblings (under 5s) are coming as well and not taking part in the main craft activity, we can provide colouring materials for them free of charge, as the workshop charges are to help us cover the cost of craft materials.

Suitable for
7-10
11-13
5-6

Admission
£5.50 per child. Adults free - Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
