February Fun at Poole Museum

Why not pop into Poole Museum this half term and find out what’s going on.

Have a go at the fables and folk stories trail and find out about Poole’s part through the lives and stories of Poole’s ancestors. This free trail will run from Saturday 16 February until Sunday 24 February during normal Museum opening hours (10am until 4pm Tuesday to Saturday and noon until 4pm on Sundays).

Alternatively you may wish to find out about Poole’s fabulous birds with the RSBP and complete a bird migration quiz. This free event will be held from 11am until 3pm on Tuesday 19 February.

Perhaps you might like to come and listen to some stories, make up your own story or make a puppet at the Museum between 11am and 3pm on Wednesday 20 February. You can also drop in for one of our free short story sessions on 21 February. There will be a story on the hour at 12 noon (The Tiger Who Came to Tea), 1pm (The Sea-Maiden) and 2pm (Why the Sea is Salty).

Treehouse Theatre will return again on Friday 22 February at 1.30pm for an interactive performance of the Three Little Pigs. The telling will include lots of opportunities for dressing up, music making and singing. The performance is suitable for children between the ages of 3 and 8 years old and advance booking is required. Tickets cost £5 per child and are available from Poole Museum or telephone 01202 262600.

Councillor Judy Butt, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Public Engagement and Participation, with responsibility for Arts and Culture, Borough of Poole said: "There's lots of things to do this half term which provides a great opportunity for families to spend some quality time together. Whether you fancy being creative and making up your own story or puppet or dressing up and performing in a well know children's tale there is certainly something for everyone."
