STEYNING Museum has a host of fundraising activities planned for the autumn term.

The varied programme covers all age groups, starting with a charity dinner on Wednesday, September 16.

Author Julia Donaldson and her husband Malcolm will be providing the entertainment, performing their own style of music, which they composed together.

Tickets for the dinner, held in conjunction with the Sussex Produce Café, in High Street, are £22.50, to include a set menu and £5 donation to Steyning Museum.

The annual Big Draw Art Workshop will be held at Steyning Museum on Saturday, September 26, from 11am to 4pm. It is a free event for all ages and abilities, and the theme for this year is Shapes of Steyning.

For half-term, a special children’s activity event will be held on Thursday, October 29, aimed at all those of primary school age.

Volunteer Erica Gayler said: “We have changed the format of this popular event and there will just be one session this time, 10am to 12.30pm, at Steyning Museum.

“Entry is £1 per child and there is a Victorian theme, with clothes to dress up in, brass rubbing, card designing and a variety of games and toys to play with – no batteries required.”

To end the month, there will be a coffee morning on Saturday, October 31, at Penfold Hall, Church Street, Steyning, in aid of Steyning Museum.

There will be the usual cakes stall, bric-a-brac and raffle, from 10.30am to midday. The £1 entry includes coffee.

Steyning Museum, in Church Street, tells the history of the town through both permanent exhibits and temporary displays.
