My Grandson Sami Caudwell and me attended the Museum and he made a lovely shinny lantern with the help of Jo who patiently helped him with such a selection of colours of beads, sequins, stars. Felt tops etc etc . The end product was absolutely beautiful.
At the end he participated in the Halloween Trail where all the items to do with it were very carefully placed around the museum. . We both enjoyed it!!! And he got a badge and skittles to his delight. Thank you Jo you are a Star too
