Event description

Description

To celebrate our Women at War season we are hosting an event in Croydon where you can learn all about the significant roles women in Kenley had to play in the Home Front, maintaining the mentality of ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ as well as ‘Make Do and Mend’.

Explore what life in Kenley would have been like during World War II and take part in rationing activities, gain ideas about recycling and use spare materials to make fun wartime toys.

In addition to the activities we have an exclusive children's workshop you can book in advance:

Want to travel the world with your own plane?

Join Jason the Gipsy Moth in this fun sensory workshop full of sound, imagery and hands on activities where children can get creative designing and making their own planes. Groups will find out the basics of flight and be inspired by the designs of DaVinci, The Wright Brothers, Dehavilland and more!

Jason will also have some stories to tell you from his adventure to Australia with his pilot Amy Johnson and will be very happy to help you plan a dream flying adventure!

11:30 – 12:30 & 1:30 – 2:30 suitable for ages 5 years+ (note the other activities will be available for free from 11am - 3pm)

The Jason workshops, hosted by Jenny Lockyer, will be free of charge, however there are only limited spaces available so please book in advance for your preferred slot.

Please note children must be supervised at all times.

Ticket bookings are for children with a maximum of 1 adult per child to supervise.
