CU Festival of Fun Spotlight On...

...Heritage and History

We have a number of Learning Destinations delivering fantastic activities providing opportunities to learn all about the history of Sheffield, and how museum artefacts can be preserved and presented for future generations. 

Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet led a session last Sunday entitled ‘Who shot Mr Tyzack?’ where families learned all about the evidence set against a backdrop of Sheffield’s history.  Children interviewed three costumed characters each with a different side of the story to tell, before gathering evidence to decide who they thought ‘did the deed’. 


Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet is open throughout the summer holidays with a range of activities for all ages.

 Weston Park Museum are running their ever-popular Young Curator’s course, where children can learn the top tips of the trade from the museum’s curators.  They’ll learn how they put together a collection, how to display the items and label them too.  A ‘must’ for any museum-lover!



Their Young Curator’s Course is happening on Tuesday 21st July, 10.30am-2.30pm at Weston Park Museum.  Call 0114 278 2686 to book a place and to find out more.
