The Ironbridge Gorge Museums have a jam packed Summer full of fun for everyone, here are just a few things going at the site of the World Heritage Site in Ironbridge:
On Saturday 24th July, Blists Hill Victorian Town in Shropshire’s Ironbridge Gorge, will be taking part in the Cultural Olympiad's Open Weekend by putting on a variety of 'Amusements and Distractions' on the Village Green. The day’s events will showcase a range of traditional theatrical performance styles and give a taste of what a Victorian audience might have enjoyed back in the 1800s.
Budding amateur sleuths and would-be private detectives will have the chance to help Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson solve a mysterious crime, which has taken place at Blists Hill Victorian Town in the Ironbridge Gorge during the weekend of Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th August. Youngsters will also be able to try their hands at forensic science during the two-day event by taking each other’s finger prints, printing reward posters and matching plaster cast footprints to different shoes.
Sailing boats, glass, paper, honey and the 365-day calendar were all discovered by the Egyptians. These and a host of other interesting facts will be revealed at Ingenious Egyptians, a month-long event taking place at the Enginuity Design & Technology Centre in the Ironbridge Gorge, Shropshire from Saturday 1st to Tuesday 31st August.
