Fun Fridays, Super Saturdays & holiday activities

Learn about life in Hackney with our fun hands-on activities every Friday and Saturday. Live like Anglo-Saxons and load the Saxon boat; learn about Victorian toys and try on historical costumes; find out how people travelled in and around Hackney by being a bus driver on a number 38 bus or play with our special train track and be a train driver.

You can do this and much more every Friday and Saturday 10am – 4.30pm. The activities will also be available throughout the school holidays. All children must be supervised by a responsible adult.
