City of Stories – Family Activities

Enjoy the end of the Easter holidays at Great St Mary’s with a craft and storytelling session on Friday 8 April.

A professional storyteller will be sharing tales of old Cambridge. Inspired by these local legends, children can make a dragon puppet, pin the tail on Hobson’s horses, create a giant Cambridge skyline together and draw their own comic.

The activities will run from 1pm-4pm, with three Cambridge stories to hear.

The afternoon costs £2 per child, and should be pre-booked.

To reserve your place, please email Rosie on heritage@gsm.cam.ac.uk, or ring 01223 741722.

The crafts are suitable for children aged 6+, and accompanying adults must remain with children at all times.

Singing History

As part of the Cambridge History Festival and the Science Festival, we hosted the Singing History – Sounds of Steam Concert organised by Historyworks.

Local children discovered stories of Darwin’s stuffed monkey, soapy pig races for Queen Victoria and fossilised dinosaur poo on Coldham’s Common.

We created drawings of these Cambridge stories (and some balloon-powered wagons) and then school choirs from Milton Road Primary and Milton CE Primary treated us to a performance of their Singing History songs – including a brand-new song about Great St Mary’s bells!
