The Grove Museum in Ramsey will be the venue for five days of family fun next week, in a specially themed parlour games week taking place between 25 and 29 July.
During the week of fun and games, families are encouraged to put their ipads, mobiles and computer games away, and enjoy good old fashioned fun at the Grove house and gardens. Outdoor pastimes including croquet, boules and hop scotch will be available to enjoy, whilst more unusual games including ‘The Laughing Game’, ‘The Sculptor’ and ‘Blow the Feather’ will also be played.
In the gardens, visitors can also enjoy the new talking bench on which Janet Gibb recounts her memories of life at the Grove, and there will also be the opportunity to see the newly displayed Servants bedroom which recounts the life of Dolly Evans, a maid who worked at the Grove. There will also be the opportunity to see the Child’s Bedroom, which is currently being redisplayed.
Visitors are encouraged to bring a picnic to enjoy in the gardens. Free juice and popcorn will be available throughout the afternoons.
The parlour games week takes place from 2pm to 4pm daily, Monday 25 July to Friday 29 July 2016 at the Grove Museum in Ramsey. Standard admission charges apply, with free entry to all children with their ACE cards, Friends Members, Season Pass and Holiday Pass holders.
