Young Curator’s Club: Romans and the origins of Valentine’s Day

An interactive Roman themed session.

Find out about the Roman origins of Valentine’s Day. Handle Roman artefacts to find out more about the Romans and their impact on this area. Explore our Roman gallery with fun activities.

Finish by making a Roman mosaic coaster on a wooden base, perhaps with a Valentines theme! (to be collected the following week or session).

Our Young Curator’s club (previously Young WANHS) is for 8-13 year olds and will take place, as before, on the second Saturday of each month. Sessions are focussed around our collections and exhibitions, and subjects we look at include archaeology, history, natural history and art. Take part in practical activities such as archaeological recording, experiments, art, and walks to local archaeological sites. There are also opportunities to visit or take part in local archaeological digs taking place.

There’s no annual fee, but pre-booking is essential to help us plan the sessions. Each session costs £6 per child.

New members are always welcome

For more information, please contact Ali Rushent, our Learning and Outreach Officer.

Not yet 8? Then why not come along to our Museum Explorer’s club for 5-7 year olds (3rd Saturday of the month), or Curious Kids for 2 – 4 year olds (first Saturday of the month).
