Night at The Museum, Rugby Museum and Art Gallery, Thursday May 14
Rugby Museum and Art Gallery will be coming alive with events for all the family for Museums at Night 2010.
Night-time adventures begin with a chance to meet a knight and an archer to discover how medieval men of war fought when England was rent in two by the houses of York and Lancaster.
Visitors will be able to discover how the knights of olde lived and there will even be the opportunity to try on a chainmail shirt or helmet for size.
Even more activities will be taking place in the art gallery with storytelling performances, face pianting and hands-on craft activities.
There will also be a special shadow puppet workshop and the chance for visitors to make their own puppets, find out about their fascinating characters and history, and then learn how to bring them to life by creating their own show on the walls of the museum at night.
All are welcome but children must be accompanied by an adult. And don't forget to bring a torch!
