Seaside tales brought to life at Marlipins

CRAFT activities for children aged four to eight are on offer at the Marlipins Museum in Shoreham during the school summer holidays.

The Make and Take days will involve making props to help illustrate an interactive story, featuring well-known seaside tales over three Mondays.

The first story is The Mousehole Cat on Monday. The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch follows on Monday, August 4, and the final tale is The Night Pirates on Monday, August 18.

Sessions will run at the High Street museum from 11am to 12.30pm, and 2pm to 3.30pm.

All children must be accompanied by an adult. Sessions cost £4.50 per child, accompanying adult free.

Booking is essential for both morning or afternoon sessions. Visit the museum, telephone 01273 462994 or email to book.

Marlipins Museum is normally open Tuesday to Saturday, 10.30am to 4.30pm, from May to October. Admission is £2.50 for adults, £1 children.

The day-to-day running is organised by Friends of Marlipins Museum volunteers.
