The alternative St Georges Day at The Museum in the Park, Stroud
Stroud's Museum in the Park is set to mark a wonderfully quirky alternative to St George's Day on Sunday 23 April, 3pm–5pm.
A thrilling afternoon of Dragon Tales and Dragon Tracking celebrates ‘National Dragon Day', which is an idea hatched by Agent Green the Dragon Whisperer as a different take on the dragon slaying saint's day.
Following her popular appearance at the Museum last summer, Agent Green is back – and she's bringing a friend, Agent Krisa the Keeper of Tales from DCHQ Dragon Conservation Headquarters. At 3pm Agent Krisa tells magical Dragon Tales from around the world, including the heroic legend of England's patron saint. Then at 4pm Agent Green leads a Dragon Tracking & Survival exercise in Stratford Park, including more stories, dragon care and training, and her version of the truth about George!
Families are invited to come and join Agent Green (played by Chloe of the Midnight Storytellers) and Agent Krisa, Keeper of Dragon Tales (played by storyteller Kirsty Hartsiotis). This special event is open to children aged 5 and is ideal for 7 to 12 year olds. The fabulous family ticket costs just £10 and admits up to 5 children, and accompanying adults get to enjoy it for free!
To book places call the Museum on 01453 763394.
Animation in Stroud
Did you know that Stroud was home to a famous animation studio? It is a story that was left untold, until now.
Tales of Nonsense...
To coincide with the ‘Tales of Nonsense' 2016 Cheltenham Illustration Awards exhibition at the Museum in the Park, a pop up Illustrators' Fair is set to be staged on Saturday 4th March.
Preliminary Design for Stratford Park Leisure Centre
One highlight from our recent acquisitions case is a 1971 booklet showing an artist's impression of the main hall.
