Our events included 'Museums at Knight' - a family event.
|A knight in shining armour told tales of daring adventure!|
Down in the museum itself visitors took part in a dragon themed trail and crafts. With paper dragons and dragon mask making the museum was sure to require our knight's help...
|Visitors were encouraged to come dressed for the event!|
Comments from visitors included:
‘very well organised the boys loved it, thank you’
‘He was fab, please use him again’
‘Good for parents too!’
Thanks to our Medieval Knight for his story telling and interactive adventure.
On the same evening, we also had a very different event, but just as fun! To come to an adult talk on historical vegetables called 'Flatulence and Phlegm', you would perhaps expect something a little different...
Dr Annie Gray, food historian, is a wonderfully entertaining speaker, who had her audience enthralled, inspired and giggling in equal measure!
|Dr Annie Gray with the foods made to historic recipes|
We learned the virtues of samphire (and its correct pronunciation), that tea made with cleavers was supposed to keep you slim (but tastes 'green'), and that carrot puddings made from hollowed-out carrots filled with a pudding mixture aren't worth the effort (and look like severed fingers!).
|Everyone gets stuck into the food samples after the talk!|
A final, random snippet - apparently hares have ear wax! (Just to show that a talk on historic vegetables isn't just about rabbit food!)
Thanks again Annie - a very enjoyable evening!
