Bring your stuffed animals along and join the Teddy Bear’s Picnic for lots of fun and games, then head to the pavilion for some teddy bear crafts.

There’ll also be face painting.

Take a ‘Garden Walk and Talk’ with our Gardening Volunteers, who’ll chat about what they’ve been up too and what plants can be found at David Livingstone Birthplace.

Plus, the local emergency services will be onsite so expect to see vintage appliances along with the up to the minute vehicles we see every day. The police will be there for bike marking, and fun activities!

Chat with Trading Standards about anything that has been worrying you - they are full of really useful information!

Most activities are free of charge!

Entry to the museum will be FREE for all children, accompanied by a paying adult.
