To celebrate our Women at War season we are hosting an event in Croydon where you can learn all about the significant roles women in Kenley had to play in the Home Front, maintaining the mentality of ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ as well as ‘Make Do and Mend’.
Explore what life in Kenley would have been like and take part in rationing activities, gain ideas about recycling and use spare materials to make fun wartime toys.
There will also be activities with a modern twist, showing how behaviors of the time can help us now with recycling and environmentalism – do you think the attitudes of our wartime past can help us impact on the way we consider waste today?
Children's Workshops:
11.30- 12.30
Join Jason the Gipsy Moth in these fun workshops where children can get creative designing and making their own planes. Children can find out about the basics of flight and be inspired by the designs of DaVinci, The Wright Brothers, Dehavilland and more!
Jason will have some tales to tell from his adventure to Australia with his pilot Amy Johnson and will be very happy to help you plan a dream flying adventure!
Each workshop lasts an hour. Suitable for children aged 5years+.
