Youngsters visiting the Museum of Cannock Chase in half-term will get the chance to turn sleuth and solve a nature crime which took place on Hednesford Hills.
In partnership with CBBC’s Live ‘n’ Deadly show, the museum will be inviting visitors to take part in some DSI: Deadly Scene Investigation.
The usual suspects have been rounded up and Deadly Detectives will need to follow the clues to crack a whodunit, finding out more about the top predators in our local environment.
Deadly Detectives taking part will have a special activity booklet to complete and will be rewarded with special treats including badges and a code to access an exclusive game on the CBBC website.
Drop in craft sessions and fun and games will also reveal facts about ravenous raptors and sneaky snakes which call the Chase home.
Cllr Chris Mitchell, Culture and Sport Portfolio Leader, said: “Live ‘n’ Deadly is an incredibly popular show which really brings nature to life in all its gory details.
“It’s fantastic to partner with such a popular show to tell people all about the vicious predators which live all around us and offer the chance to explore the hidden secrets of the natural world.
“We hope to see many families at the event this half term, enjoying a variety of special fun activities and everything else that the museum has to offer.”
DSI: Deadly Scene Investigation is an outdoor trail at the museum which will run from 24-28 October between 12noon and 3pm daily.
Deadly craft sessions will run on Monday 24 October between 11am-3pm on a drop in basis, craft sessions will cost £1 per child and are free for accompanying adults. Other Halloween themed craft sessions will run throughout the half term holiday.
The Museum of Cannock Chase – on Valley Road, Hednesford – is open weekdays from 11am to 4pm with last admission at 3.30pm. Admission is free. For more information, call the Museum on 01543 877666.
