Family Bubble Days at Wisbech Museum

Family Bubble Days at Wisbech Museum

Wisbech and Fenland Museum celebrated the end of the school holidays by welcoming its first visitors for months to a safe Family Bubble experience at the weekend.

Each of the three families, who had pre-booked for a staggered arrival via the Museum's Facebook page, enjoyed the chance to explore the Museum and take part in a multi-generational craft session to create a Roman-style mosaic.

More free socially distanced sessions for three families at a time will be happening through the school term, with the next scheduled for October 3, and others at half-term.

Project Officer Louise Haselgrove said: “The first Family Bubble Day was booked up within 24 hours via Facebook and worked really well, as parents – and in one case grandparents as well – all got stuck in and enjoyed every aspect of it along with the children.

“It has given us the opportunity to test our social distancing precautions, like the new one-way system, before the Museum is able to open to the general public again.”

The White family from Wisbech St Mary visited with three generations.

Julie White said: “It was brilliant – a very well-thought-out activity. Adults and children enjoyed it, and we'd love to come back to future events.”

Details about future sessions will be advertised on Facebook:

The free sessions have been made possible thanks to funding provided by SHARE Museums East, Arts Council England, and The National Lottery Heritage Fund.
