It is free to visit and you don’t need to book.

You can create a dish for the royal tea table, inspired by traditional street parties. Vintage crockery sits 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 make a traditional tricorn hat as worn by town criers.

Guildford’s town crier David Peters will be there on the day in two free sessions from noon to 1.30pm and 2pm to 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!

The museum is open from Wednesdays to Saturdays noon to 4.30pm (last entry 4pm).
