Palace explorers

Join our creative, hands-on sessions for 2 to 4 year olds and their adults. Each week introduces an exciting new theme to explore.

This week

Queen of the garden
Queen Elizabeth II loves the outdoors – and so do we! We’re discovering all the different coloured  leaves and creating a wonderful autumn mask.

Upcoming sessions this term

Monday 18 November – Wonderful wigs
We’ll explore the world of the Georgians, which includes wigs which Queen Charlotte wore. We’ll make and wear our own wild wigs!

Monday 25 November – Hats off!
Would you dare wear yours in church? Would Charles I have removed his when visiting the Palace? We’ll make our own outrageous hats!

Tickets include a drink and healthy snack. Accompanying adults and babies are free. Please note, children must be accompanied by an adult.
