Fun for all the family on International Day of Families

The Heritage Foundation is celebrating International Day of Families on Sunday 15 May with a host of great events, activities and offers across several of its venues.

Observed on the 15th May every year, the International Day of Families was established by the United Nations in 1993. The day aims to highlight the important role that families hold in communities, cultures and societies; and raise awareness of issues faced by families throughout the world.

To mark the day, the Foundation will be putting on several budget-friendly activities at a number of their family attractions for visitors  to enjoy.

Museum at One Garden City will be popping up at The Wynd in Letchworth town centre with a special Outdoor Museum. The micro museum is currently closed as it prepares for its latest exhibition - Tom Karen: Creations, but families can head to the free outdoor exhibition to learn about Letchworth’s unique history. After exploring the outdoor displays, little ones will even get to take home a goody bag.

Broadway Gallery, situated in The Arcade, invites families to book a slot at their free Family Arts workshops which run each Saturday. The workshops are for children under 10 and are hosted by local artist Mollie Mclellan. Spaces can be booked at online. Or simply drop into The Kids’ Gallery on Sunday 15 May where children and their grown-ups can spend quality time together creating beautiful artwork to take home using the gallery's art materials, all of which is free.
