FREE, drop-in event for families during October half term 2023

For families with children aged 5–10

Meet in the Reading and Writing Gallery 6, lower ground floor

Come and join us at half term for this fun drop-in event to enjoy story time and also create your own story at the Ashmolean.

You'll explore our Reading and Writing Gallery on the lower ground floor, learn about Islamic calligraphy, and then relax listening to a story and create your own too.

All materials will be provided.
