WELSH MUSEUMS FESTIVAL HALF TERM ACTIVITY AT
ANDREW LOGAN MUSEUM OF SCULPTURE
Exploring Extraordinary Times, Museums At Home and Halloween Hullabaloo!
Welsh Museums Festival is gearing up to help you enjoy a #HistoricHalfTerm this October, with a wealth of online events, activities and resources to delight all ages, from 24 October to 1 November. The Andrew Logan Museum of Sculpture, in Berriew, Powys, Wales will be offering a #HalfTermHomeHeroes crafting kit to help occupy the child in everyone.
The crafting kits are based on the Museum’s popular workshops and contain all you need to make your very own Andrew Logan inspired work of art – with full instructions and the all important glitter! Andrew will be choosing his favourites from photographs sent to the Museum: the top prize is an annual Museum family pass (start date to suit winner) with goodies for the runners up.
Speaking about the planned events, Anne-Marie Pope, Museum Manager said: “We are delighted to be able to offer an activity for everyone at home, and especially something physical. All the packs have been put together under risk assessed safe methods. If you’re looking for an activity for the whole family, you can order your Half-Term Home Heroes crafting kit now from the ‘Events’ section of our website (andrewloganmuseum.org/events), or by calling the Museum on either 01686 640 689 or 07907 767 839.”
In addition to the Andrew Logan Museum of Sculpture, Museums across Wales are preparing online workshops, talks and activities, broadcast to your home. ‘Museum at Home’ will be one of this year’s key Festival themes and, as well as bringing museum content to homes, the Festival will also be helping you explore your home as a museum.
There will be plenty of fun activities to help make half term as interesting and exciting as possible and the Festival is on hand to support with Halloween hullabaloo too!
Welsh Museums Festival is an annual event presented by the Federation of Museums and Art Galleries of Wales, which is the strategic body for museums and galleries and those working in this sector within Wales. It currently represents over 100 unique accredited Welsh museums, from the very small to our great national museums. Together, these invaluable collections tell the story of Wales, and are a treasured resource for learning, exploration and knowledge about our local and national identity, and how we have lived here in Wales since the dawn of time.
Speaking about the Festival, Federation of Welsh Museums President, Victoria Rogers said: “The Welsh Museums Festival provides a focus for museums in Wales to create events to empower and further connect with their local communities, and to excite a new generation about the history and stories of their place. Museums are guardians of our past, but they are essentially about people and about creating our future. This year’s Festival will be focusing on making sure people all across the country can take part in fun events and activities at their local museums – whether onsite or online – something we know is much needed at the moment.”
Welsh Museums Festival is funded by Welsh Government.
Welsh Museums Festival runs from 24 October – 1 November this year with a blend of physical and online events for all ages and many are FREE. Full details of activities during Welsh Museums Festival are available on the festival website: www.museums.wales
