Still Lost in The Toy Museum - A Museums at Night event for Culture24

Something very strange occurred at the Toy Museum on the 17th of May,  something very strange indeed. Something that involved lost toys and people dressed in funny costumes.  This event was "Still Lost in the Toy Museum". An event that gave children (and grown-ups too) an evening of fun, games and creative projects. The event was presided over by the museum’s volunteers who had just as much fun as the children and parents who came.

(Waiting for the children to arrive)
Cakes were eaten, treasure hunts completed and tales told, in general, a wonderful time was had by all.

 The highlight of the evening was a story reading, by our resident actor/storyteller, Marc Sinclair.

Marc did several readings throughout the evening, which had us all in stitches as he did different funny voices for each character.

There were also plenty of arts and crafts activities for the children to have fun with, these ranged from puppets to glove rabbits and proved very popular with children and grown-ups alike.
(We’re all having lots of fun.)
Some of our volunteers got jealous and decided that they wanted to play with all of the toys as well.
(I’m a kid honest!)
Toys were hidden throughout the museum for the children to find.
(Shush, be very, very quiet, I’m hiding from the children.)
 Even Buddy the Museum Bear wanted to get in on the action.
(This looks like fun)
At the end of the evening everyone one was very tired and happy, we all agreed the event had been a big success.
