Elgar the Scientist - Half-term Activities
30 November -1
Daily at The Firs, Upper Broadheath
Half-term fun and activities for children at the birthplace of Sir Edward Elgar.
Inspired by Elgar the Scientist, why not create your very own slime? Craft £2 (normal admission applies)
Get up close and personal with fascinating scientific experiments that you can try at home! Every day during half-term starting at 11:30am, 12:45pm, 1:30pm and 2:30pm. Free event (normal admission applies)
Then onto the birthplace cottage you can see Elgar’s own microscope and specimens he cut and sliced, so he could delve deeper into the unknown world of science.
Explore the microscopic world and see things through a different lens. Follow the footsteps of Elgar to discover the scientific secrets he hid at The Firs. Recieve your microscope prize at the start to find the secrets on the trail. Trail £1.50 (normal admission applies)
The Birthplace Garden will be showing the signs of Spring (hopefully!) with snowdrops in flower and daffodils pushing through the ground.
