The celebrations, called Platinum Jubilee – A Time of Celebration, continues up to June 18.

Lead councillor for cconomy, John Redpath, said: “Don’t miss the jubilee celebrations at the museum! Find out fun facts about how Guildford celebrates royal events and enjoy an interactive learning experience.”

“Echoing traditions from Guildford’s royal past you can enjoy these activities with your family and friends. Find the time to visit this inspired display or drop-in to an activity where you will become a part of the celebration.”

Guildford Museum in Quarry Street is open from Wednesdays to Saturdays 12-4.30pm (last entry 4pm).

It is free and you don’t need to book, just drop-in.

You can create a dish for the royal tea table, inspired by the traditional street party. Vintage crockery will sit on the tea table alongside papier-mâché crockery and salt-dough food, created in sessions with young people from the Halow Project.

On Wednesday, June 1, you can take part in a fun and make a traditional tri-corn hat as worn by the town criers.

Guildford’s own Town Crier, David Peters will be there on the day in two free sessions from 12-1.30pm and 2-3.30pm. Hear him “cry out” the good news and ring his bell. Maybe join in and see if you are as loud as he can be.
