1960s Party

1960s Party at Enginuity

  • 20 May 2017 5:30-10pm

As part of the Museums at Night Festival Enginuity, one of the ten Ironbridge Gorge Museums, will be holding a free entry 1960s party from 5.30pm on 20 May 2017. The fun family event is part of the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust’s 50th anniversary celebrations.

Children of all ages can play popular board games from the ‘60s such as Twister, Operation and Mousetrap as well as KerPlunk, while entertainment will be provided by the local TADLOP musical theatre group performing popular jukebox hits and favourites from five decades ago. Grown-ups can also enjoy a glass of sparkling Babycham or Blue Nun wine from the cash bar.

The Fab Lab design and manufacture facility, which includes a 3D printer, will be open for younger visitors to take part in a creative activity for a small charge.

We'd love to see you dressed in your funkiest 1960's fashion - there's even a prize for the best dressed on the night!

The evening is also a great opportunity for everyone to experience the giant techno exhibits in Enginuity. Pull a 10 tonne locomotive by hand, see right through things with the massive x-ray machine and challenge our robotic arm to a reaction battle! There's also a play area for smaller children and a shop packed with great science, design and technology inspired toys.

Doors open 5.30pm and the evening will finish around 10pm.
