Museum and Art Gallery Events
Free Saturday Event Days
The Museum & Art Gallery runs free Saturday Event Days on the first Saturday of every month except January. Meet a character from history, listen to a story or work with an artist. These special days promise a lot of fun for everyone!
No need to book. Just drop-in and take part. Children must be accompanied by an adult and at busy times you may be asked to wait.
The next free Saturday event day is Roman Saturnalia on Saturday 7 December, 11am to 4pm.
Find out how the Romans celebrated the midwinter feast of Saturnalia. Long before Christians adopted this week long festival, it was a time associated with merrymaking, eating, drinking and gift giving. Candles and flames were a feature. Social rules were relaxed and slaves were allowed to exchange roles with their masters. Local Romans Geminus and Cinnamus will be pleased to show you their preparations for the feast.
