Summer fun at Richmondshire's museums

[Friday 14 July 2006]

EVERY school pupil in the Richmondshire and Hambleton will be entitled to free entry to 11 museums across the two Yorkshire Dales Districts over the summer holidays.

There are lots of exciting opportunities for children of all ages to try something new and charges for the activities are minimal or non-existent

Lynda Powell - Community and Cultural Wellbeing Officer

It's all part of the 'Summer Fun' scheme, which will see a range of activities taking place to keep children amused throughout the long weeks ahead.

A full programme of activities, including medal mania at the Green Howards' Museum and street act workshops at the Georgian Theatre in Richmond, crafty contraptions at Thirsk Museum and drawing sessions at Shandy Hall in Coxwold, is on offer to children of all ages.

"There are lots of exciting opportunities for children of all ages to try something new and charges for the activities are minimal or non-existent", says Richmondshire's Community and Cultural Wellbeing Officer, Lynda Powell.

"Friendly staff and artists are on hand to make sure everyone has fun. Last year's events were really well received, and we have some new additions for 2006 which I'm sure will prove very appealing."

The Summer Fun guides are currently being distributed via schools across the area. There's also the chance to win £100 if you complete a treasure hunt in all 11 museums. The programme concludes with a Viking Day at the Dales Countryside Museum in Hawes on Sunday 3rd September.

For more information about the activities on offer, contact Lynda Powell on 01748 829100, or e-mail l.powell@richmondshire.gov.uk

The guide is also available at www.richmondshire.gov.uk
