School Holiday Activities

Whether it’s the half-term breaks or the full summer holiday, keeping children occupied during school holidays is essential.

Our popular Curry and Craft days run during the Easter Holidays and October Half Term and are an opportunity for children to try out Nepalese and Gurkha themed craft activities as well as taste some authentic Nepalese Curry. During the Summer holidays we also offer handling collection sessions within the Museum. School holiday activities are free of charge but we do ask for an optional donation on the day.

All Year Round
