About the event

Wallace & Gromit film screenings, Shaun the Sheep model making and an Easter egg hunt: Easter at The Postal Museum

Are you looking for A Grand Day Out this Easter? The Postal Museum has paired up with the minds behind Wallace and Gromit to create an array of activities for all ages – but don’t worry, there will be no Were-Rabbits in sight!

Entertainment seekers looking for a great half-day out with the family will have the chance to make their own Shaun the Sheep or Gromit model with an Aardman expert model maker, watch a family-friendly screening of a Wallace & Gromit favourite, design their own tote bag or even create their own stamp-inspired selfie sculpture.

The Postal Museum runs a huge variety of activities every school holiday for families with children of all ages, and activities are included in the price of a museum ticket.

With something new to do almost every time you visit, it’s no surprise Day out with the Kids readers recently voted The Postal Museum the best London day out for under 5s.

Times and dates

Activities take place from Tuesday 9 April to Sunday 21 April 2019 and are included in the price of a ticket on a first come first serve basis. Most activities are drop in but for the model making workshops and film screenings visitors will need to book online. Full details are available online www.postalmuseum.org/easter-2019
