A New Year Beckons

We are all ready for a busy Half Term break with a full programme of art and craft activities to keep your children and grandchildren busy. This holiday we have taken the theme of Outer Space, giving our younger visitors a chance to try their hand at a different activity each day, from designing an alien hat to making your own Man in the Moon.

If your youngsters havenít already explored our new Made In Mansfield industrial gallery, why not bring them down and give them a chance to don a hard hat and a tool belt full of tape measures, torches, magnifying glasses, dusters and more as they follow one of our intriguing trails?

Running until 21st February is our vibrant Spray Art exhibition, installed by talented young local people. Following hard on its heels is A Decade of Glamour, an exhibition exploring both everyday and extraordinary garments of the 1950s. Whether itís the dazzling dresses of the Paris couture houses or the ready to wear styles of M&S, there is something to interest any student of clothes culture.

If you didnít make a Resolution (Or have already failed in your over-ambitious good intentions!) why not promise yourself a trip over to see us and while away an hour in our latest selection of displays?
