Leap back to medieval times in this questing family morning at The Commandery!

Learn how to fire a trebuchet (a type of catapult) in the gardens, play in castle tents and gallop with hobby horses.

You can also get creative by making your own crown and amulet – what design will yours have? Decorate a stained-glass window too, and enjoy medieval-themed colouring in and puzzles.

Fairytale Adventures | Tuesdays to Thursdays 6, 7, 8 August and 27, 28, 29 August

Once upon a time at The Commandery… there was plenty of fairytale fun to be had!

Create your own fairy, make a big bad wolf mask, and see if you can put Humpty Dumpty back together again. There’ll be colouring in and puzzle sheets to enjoy too.

In a building as old as this, there’s sure to be a fairytale or two to be found… Are you brave enough to follow the trail to find them all?
