Create a Christmas 'Gingerbread' Gloucester
Inspired by the popular Swedish Christmas tradition of gingerbread houses (Pepparkakhus), the museum is creating a cardboard ‘gingerbread’ Gloucester with visitors of all ages invited to add to the cityscape. Using ready-made cardboard ‘gingerbread’ cut outs and decorated with white paint ‘icing’, the 2D buildings can be added to the scene or taken away for a touch of Scandinavian Christmas magic at home.
All the materials for this festive flat pack will be provided, no booking needed and the drop-in sessions are included in the museum admission.
Although the gingerbread buildings are not suitable for eating the museum café will be serving gingerbread treats!
The museum is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 3pm.
Tickets give unlimited return visits for 12 months and cost: Adult (16+) £8.50; Child (6-15) £5.00; Child (5 and under) Free; Family £20.00; Concession £7.50.
