Half-term saw scores of families with bags of imagination heading down to Royston Museum for crafty fun.
Fans of the children’s TV show Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom were in their element when they were invited down to make elf hats, magic wands, fairy wings and crowns to recreate the popular animation.
On Saturday, the museum was transformed into 400AD Constantinople when children were set the task of making Roman style Gladius swords and helmets.
Visitors on the Saturday morning were also able to use the printing press to produce their own lino print pictures of Roman soldiers.
Museum curator Jenny Oxley said: “Thank you to everyone who came along to our half-term events, it was lovely to see the museum full of families on both craft days.
