It was all about Flintstones fun at the weekend, when Royston Museum hosted its annual Stone Age day at the Lower King Street venue.

About 70 visitors came along to take part at the fun-fest, which saw a whole range of activities straight from the town of Bedrock.

Curator Jenny Oxley said: “The kids especially enjoyed making their own pottery, jewellery and Stonehenges, and the clay and the cave painting was brilliantly messy fun as always.

“We’re really excited that the summer holidays has got off to a such a good start for us.”

The museum’s popular Crafty Wednesday sessions are starting this week and will run every Wednesday morning between 10.30am and 12noon during the schools holidays, with themes including pirates, dinosaurs and fossils, and elves and fairies.
