May Half Term at the Ragged School Museum

Join us this Half Term to and mark International Children’s Day with


“Children in Victorian Stories”



Alice in Wonderland illustrated by John Tenniel


Authors of the 19th Century played a vital role in developing new views of childhood and what it meant, giving children voices to be heard and stories to be told.
Come and join us, along with Alice, Oliver, Mowgli and more for two days of educational activities that explore the pages of these children’s tales.
John Lockwood Kipling

And of course, the Towpath Café will be open for the parched grown-ups!
