Bank Holiday children’s sessions at Killhope

From sand art to water rockets, there’s lots of exciting things to make and do at a County Durham museum this Bank Holiday weekend.

Youngsters can get craft at sand art workshops on Sunday, 6 May. Sessions, which should be booked in advance, run at 12 noon, 1pm and 2pm and cost £3 per child.

Sunday also sees the opportunity to join in the craze for painting and hiding rocks at free Killhope Rocks workshops. Drop-in sessions start at 12 noon and 2pm.

And on Monday, 7 May, youngsters can design and build their own water rocket to launch on site. The water rocket workshop is aimed at children aged between four and 14. Places are limited but can be booked on the day.

Maria McArdle, museum operations officer, said: “There will be lots happening over the Bank Holiday weekend with our programme of activities but, of course, there’s also our amazing mine to explore, displays and exhibitions and our stunning surroundings.”
