Easter Paw-ty at the Museum

Think your dog has the waggiest tail or maybe you just can’t wait to show off their Easter outfit? Then this is a party you won’t want to miss! Come and celebrate Easter with us and join in with our doggie themed events including our Fun Dog Show.

The entertainment starts at 10.30am with a Pet Blessing in the King’s Yard by the Revd Robert Otule from our neighbouring All Saints Church. Afterwards explore the grounds of the museum with our Easter Trail which has been tailored for families as well as pooches!

There will also be free creative activities, doggie themed of course, plus a chance to meet our Artist in Residence, Nichola Eddery who is renowned for her portraits of dogs.
