Summer Holiday Fun with Tunbridge Wells Museum & Art Gallery

Get out and about with your local museum and art gallery this summer and discover something special about our rich cultural heritage as well as our local surroundings.

Something for children…

If you have primary school aged children to entertain over the summer then bring them along to one of Tunbridge Wells Museum & Art Gallery’s free Holiday Happenings events every Wednesday and Thursday in August. With detective trails and arts and crafts on a different theme each week, it’s a great way to spend a few hours.

Older children will enjoy the chance to explore their local environment during a Mini Beast Safari with expert Ian Beavis, every Thursday in August at a different local park each week. Younger siblings needn’t miss out either as there are special Young Nature Hunters sessions which are open to all ages.

Something for adults…

There are plenty of events for adults over the summer at the Museum & Art Gallery as well. Join us for a one-off event looking at historic costume on Sunday 19 August. See some examples of costume from the collections, talk to the museum experts and try on some replica pieces.

Or why not join us for a High Weald Walk on Saturday 11 August or Saturday 8 September? These inspiring walks give you a chance to explore the animal and plant life of specific High Weald habitats with expert Ian Beavis.

Remember too that activities up until 9 September are part of Tunbridge Wells Celebrates Sports & Culture Passport. There’s still time to join in the fun! Find out more at www.tunbridgewellscelebrates.co.uk
