October Half Term in the Assembly Rooms

Assembly Rooms Open Days

What's happening?

The Assembly Rooms are open to enjoy!

On Wednesday 26th October come along to the Assembly Rooms for spooky crafts – make your own sock monster! If you can bring along any spare socks you might have – all the better.

10.30am-12.30pm & 2.00pm-4.00pm, free.

Craft, build, play and explore:

We’ll also have our water-themed sensory bags, doll’s house, dressing up, tea set and the ever popular LEGO. Or, just come along for a chat, and simply enjoy the opportunity to be in this wonderful room.

Make a day of it by booking your ticket to visit the Buxton Crescent Experience; for a special family-themed tour of 9 fun and interactive rooms.  (10.30am-3.30pm)
