You might have heard of our current Land of Legends exhibition, on display at Wrexham Museum until Saturday, November 3.
As part of the exhibition, the museum will host a storyteller recounting tales from Wales’ oldest legends, in the tradition of the great Welsh bards.
Local storyteller Fiona Collins will lead children’s storytelling sessions at Wrexham Museum on Wednesday, October 31, immersing children in the magical world of the Mabinogion – a collection of unique Welsh folk tales.
A session will take place for children aged five years and under from 11am until 11.40am, with a second session for children aged six and older from 3.30pm until 4.30pm.
As well as fitting into the suitably mythical backdrop provided by Halloween, the event will also provide parents with a great way of keeping their children entertained during the winter half term.
All children must be accompanied by an adult. Entry costs £2.50 per child and £2 per adult, with free entry for children younger than one years of age.
Limited spaces are available, and pre-booking is required.
To book, just call in to Wrexham Museum on Regent Street, or call on 01978 297460.
Wales’ legendary past brought to life
Elsewhere in the Land of Legends exhibition, books, paintings, drawings, animation and costume will bring alive the mythical world of Welsh legends.
Margaret Jones’s original illustrations for Gwyn Thomas’s 1984 update of the Mabinogion are a highlight of the exhibition sparking the imagination and an interest in the Wales that existed a thousand or so years ago.
Look out for some legendary costumes, produced by the Museum’s Knit and Stitch group, for both adults and children to try on!
Making Wrexham a ‘gateway’ to Welsh heritage
Councillor Hugh Jones, Lead Member for Communities, Partnerships, Public Protection and Community Safety, said: “It is great to see Wrexham Museum’s partnership with the National Library of Wales bringing another exhibition packed full of medieval and modern treasures to Wrexham.
“This exhibition is one of the many cultural activities happening across the county borough proving that Wrexham is the gateway to Wales’s heritage for locals and tourists alike.”
