Circus Week at Museum

Giant bubbles will be part of the fun for children when Circus Week returns to Erewash Museum this month.
 
Taking place during half term, from Tuesday 29 May to Friday 1 June, there will be free crafts for children on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, from 11am to 3pm. Youngsters will also be able to enjoy family circus skills workshops and giant bubble blowing demonstrations. 
 
On the Thursday (31 May), there will be a special circus party, costing £1.50 per child (over the age of two), giving little performers the chance to try their hand at circus skills. There will be giant bubble workshops taking place throughout the day. 
 
Councillor Mike Wallis, Lead Member for Culture and Leisure, says:
 
“We are delighted to be holding circus week again at Erewash Museum. There is a wide variety of circus activities which always prove very popular with children and parents. It is a great way to keep youngsters entertained during half term. The children enjoy learning new skills and showing them off to their friends and family.”
