Easter Eggventures for less than the price of an Easter egg

Children can have a cracking time at a half term family fun event in Bournville – the village created by chocolate maker George Cadbury – for less than the price of an Easter egg.

Selly Manor Museum in Maple Road will host its Easter Eggventures family fun event from Monday 30th March to Sunday 5th April, with children’s tickets priced at just £2.

Youngsters will be able to take part in a range of art and craft activities, including making Easter chick sun visors, bunny boxes and fluffy lambs to take away with them.

There will also be an Easter egg treasure hunt around the Museum’s grounds and a host of fun-filled Easter-themed games.

Daniel Callicott, Museum Manager, said: “The cost of keeping children entertained during half term can mount up which is why we’ve tried to make this event as affordable as possible.

“There will be plenty to do, make and see, and visitors can also explore the Museum and try on Tudor-style costumes and armour.”

Easter Eggventures runs from Monday 30th March to Friday 3rd April from 10am-5pm and Saturday 4th April to Sunday 5th April from 2pm-5pm.

Tickets costs £2 for children, £3.75 for adults, £2.75 for concessions and £12 for a family ticket (two adults and three children).

Selly Manor Museum is home to Selly Manor and Minworth Greaves and offers visitors the chance to step back in time to explore how people cooked, dressed and lived over 500 years ago.

Visitors can tour the parlour, kitchen and bedchamber of the historic Selly Manor house and try on 16th century-style costumes, including Tudor armour.

They can also explore Minworth Greaves, a cruck-framed medieval hall house – thought to be the oldest building in Birmingham.
