Followed by these this weekend:
A full calendar of seasonal events at Stroud's Museum in the Park has been lined up and many of them are free-of-charge.
Events include a `meet the makers' craft fair, a family craft making weekend, and community carol singing - all designed to get you in the Christmas mood before the museum closes on December 23 for its usual deep clean.
With many museum quiz trails for children on offer too, a visit to this friendly local museum this December is 'a must'! For full details see the Museum in the Park website.
The Museum in the Park will close from 23 December, re-opening on Saturday 25 January 2020, but with two special openings during that period, on 1 January 2020, and on 11 January for the Stroud Wassail.
