From fun metal sculptures inspired by kids books to craft workshops for those budding artists. Victorian family activities, exciting treasure hunts, The Secret Garden on the big stage and to end the Whitsun week, a flypast from the Vulcan Bomber!

Visit Enginuity during May and June to see Mr Watt, Grumpy Man Of Metal - children will love Mr Watt’s curious metal world featuring a crab’s bicycle, a flying machine and a new kind of trumpet!

During the Bank Holiday Weekend (25th to 27th May) Blists Hill Victorian Town will celebrate the 81st birthday of Queen Victoria as part of their 40th Anniversary celebrations.

If you prefer hands-on activities, then the Ironbridge Gorge Museums are a must visit. Design, make and test a sailing boat at Enginuity, make your own ceramic flowers at Coalport China Museum, decorate a tile featuring your unique design at a Jackfield Tile Museum workshop.

If the theatre is more your style, why not see 'The Secret Garden' at Oakengates Theatre - it's a timeless family classic.

Sunday 2nd June offers Street Dance Telford - a street dance spectacular from the most successful street dance school in Telford; or you can buy gifts at Apley Farm's Little Hippo Craft Fair. If all things military are your thing then watch the 10th parade of National Service RAF Veterans at RAF Museum Cosford with a Vulcan Flypast and Lancaster Display!

And when the schools return don’t forget to book tickets for Blitz Hill, An Evening on the Home Front when families are invited to dress in 1940s costume and enjoy live entertainment to celebrate the Victorian town's 40th anniversary!
