Every summer we run a Play Scheme celebrating the Thames Tunnel Fancy Fair of 1852. This year the Play Scheme is free for children in Southwark, but parents must register for the scheme. There will be games and other activities, and children will be safe and supervised at all times. Local teachers will lead the Play Scheme 9.00am-3.00pm each day.
Parents/carers need to register their child at the start of each week (registration will take place in the Museum between 9.00am-9.15am). As usual we will work principally with 7 -11 year old children from local schools. The activities will take place inside the museum and outside on the paved and grassed areas. Children should wear old & comfortable clothes for messy work, and bring their own packed lunch. We will provide drinks for morning and afternoon breaks.
Numbers will be limited to 30 places and children sign up for one week. The first day, parents/carers will need to sign a consent form with details about trips, special dietary requirements, and emergency contact details. If you would like a place for your child, please email [email protected] or complete the slip below and post through the Museum letterbox. If there is a place for your child we will contact you to confirm registration & other details.
With the children’s help we are turning the area around the Museum into a garden for everyone to use. We look forward to welcoming you to another exciting summer in the gardens outside the Museum.
