Location: Meet under the Harrier Jump Jet
Meet Nancy and hear her tales of life in the Land Army in the Second World War. Learn about her wartime experiences away from home and making new friends... especially with a quiet and timid horse called Rufus. In this interactive family friendly session, visitors can choose what happens and so each story-telling session will be different. The session uses puppets and multi-sensory resources including sounds and smells. (Ideal for all ages).
Puppets and pictures bring to life heroic and heart-warming tales of wartime animal bravery such as the stories of Bonfire the horse owned by poet John McCrae and Simpson and his donkeys.
Visitors of all ages can get involved through workshops, children’s tours and activities. Unless otherwise stated activities are free, drop-in sessions (places may be limited on the day). Activities are suitable for ages 5+ unless otherwise stated. An adult must accompany children under 12 at all times.
