HOP on board the Arty Bus for a day of art and adventure in Hertfordshire during the school half-term holiday.
Launched by East Herts Council, the Arty Bus will take youngsters on a nostalgic ride through the varied arts that East Herts has to offer.
The 39-seater bus, named Regal Four, will transport travellers between locations, where you can get off, enjoy some fun and educational activities, before getting back on the bus and heading off to the next adventure.
On Wednesday, October 31 the bus sets off from Rhodes Museum and Art Complex in Bishop’s Stortford, and the day includes painting workshops at the Artshed training centre for arts, a rhythmic drumming workshop, and a tour of the Forge Museum in Much Hadham.
The following day, Thursday, November 1, the bus begins its journey at Hertford Theatre, and throughout the day you can enjoy a Henry Moore tapestry workshop, lunch at Rhodes Theatre, and a clay model workshop at Courtyard Arts in Hertford.
Linda Haysey, executive member for health, housing and community support, said: “There’s so much to see and do, and so many great activities and workshops to get involved with, all while riding a beautiful 1950s style big red bus.
“Come and get involved and see some of the art and history that East Herts is famous for.”
Tickets are available from both Hertford Theatre box office and Rhodes Box Office.
They cost £9 for children and concessions, and £15 for adults.
Tickets include a free goody bag, refreshments at the start of the day and a buffet lunch of sandwiches and fruit.
