Have your say

STEP back in time this half term and learn about the past.

Children are invited to try maypole dancing, make a walnut shell boat, have a go on a horse drawn cart and meet the working donkeys at the Weald and Downland Museum, in Chichester.

There are some fun events taking place each day among the historic houses at the 50 acre site.

It is an opportunity to discover more about the kings and queens who ruled at the time the historic houses were built – as well as the lives of the ordinary people who lived in the houses.

The open air museum is open daily from 11am to 4pm.

Visitors should wear clothes suitable for all weathers.
