Plenty of half-term fun at Droitwich Heritage centre's Medieval Day

Droitwich Editorial 22nd Feb, 2019   0

FAMILIES had plenty of fun attending Droitwich Heritage Centre’s Medieval Activity Day on Wednesday.

Children were able to experience what daily life was like in medieval England and took part in traditional games, including hopscotch, draughts, hula-hooping and quoits.

There was also an Anglo-Saxon quiz with prizes and youngsters had the chance to get creative, making their own hobby horses and peg dollies.

Families also cut their own quills and had a go at writing with them.

Sarah Davies, one of the venue’s heritage managers, said: “We had a steady stream of families throughout the day and most of them spent a good couple of hours here.

“Some of the peg dollies and hobby horses were absolutely beautiful and I didn’t realise how hard it was to write with a quill.”
