Warrington Central Library is inviting families to join in the Jubilee fun from 10.30am on Saturday 4th June with lots of activities to celebrate the Queen’s platinum milestone.
The family fun day includes a performance from The Warrington Signing Choir, storytelling from Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service including a chance to have a look around their fire engine, and an interactive history role play from Imagining Histories.
There will also be lots of opportunities to get crafting with Union Jack bunting, a 3D printing demo, jewellery-making and cake decorating, as well as paper crafts and calligraphy from Mulan Culture and Warrington Museum’s ever popular Crafternoons.
Throughout the day artist Stef Woof will be creating a piece of artwork with the help of everyone who attends which will then become a permanent mural commemorating the Platinum Jubilee.
You can take a break with tea and cake while you watch the Jubilee slide show and take a trip down memory lane with items from the museum collection and items specially made by some of Warrington craft groups.
