Playful Museums Festival returns to Causeway Coast and Glens


The Playful Museums Festival returns to Causeway Coast and Glens during February with a series of outdoor events, crafts and storytelling for children aged 3 – 4.


Join the Museum Services team to ‘Seek, Find, Speak, Create’ at one of four local green spaces for an outdoor trail to explore nature’s treasures followed by an indoor family craft workshop.

Activities will be facilitated by The Hares Corner Cooperative, and, with help from Freddie the Squirrel, children will be encouraged to look for the signs of nature.


Participants will have a chance to get creative together by decorating a frame representing nature using items gathered from the outdoors and museum collections.


The children’s work will then go on display in a week-long exhibition at Ballymoney Museum.


The four sessions will take place from 10am-12pm in the following locations:


• Tuesday 7th February, Roe Valley Country Park – Green Lane Museum;

• Thursday 9th February, Anderson ParkColeraine Town Hall;

• Tuesday 21st February, Megaw Park – Ballymoney Town Hall;

• Thursday 23rd February, Ballycastle Forest Park – Ramoan Parish Centre.


The Playful Museum’s Festival programme also includes a storytelling session for 3–4-year-olds with Colin Urwin from the Armstrong Storytelling Trust on Wednesday 8th February in Ballymoney Town Hall from 10am – 11am.
