Carol Singing with Eleanor Holliday and Friends

Saturday 1 December | 4pm | Free

There's nothing like a good old-fashioned singsong to cheer you up as the days grow shorter and the nights draw in! Come and join in as we sing some traditional carols, led by Eleanor Holliday. Everyone welcome.

Winter Bird Walk in Stratford Park

Sunday 2 December | 10am | Free

Join Park Supervisor, Mike McCrea, for a guided walk around the park. Winter sees the return of the iconic redwing, fieldfare, siskin and an influx of robin, goldfinch and chaffinch. It's also a great time to see birds because the trees are bare. Wrap up warm, wear sturdy boots or shoes and meet outside the Museum gates.

Winter Tales with Kirsty Hartsiotis

Sunday 2 December | 3pm | £5 adults, £3.50 children

Midwinter, the darkest time of the year, is the traditional time to gather round the fire and listen to tales of fantastical things. Join storyteller Kirsty Hartsiotis for seasonal tales from around the world (and close to home!) that will take you into the dark forests and the snow to discover gift-givers and snow foresters, firebirds, princesses and bears!

To book call on 01453 763394.
