All the Fun of the Fair- Family Activity Day at
True’s Yard Fisherfolk Museum

To celebrate the return of The Mart True’s Yard Fisherfolk Museum will bring the fun of the fair indoors with a Funfair themed Family Activity Day.

The activity day which takes place on Wednesday 21st February is free for children and one accompanying adult. Families can enjoy a journey around the Museum with different activities in each location. Activities including crafts and classic games like Hook a Duck, Skittles, Ring Toss, Lucky Dip and more.

‘The Mart is an important part of King’s Lynn’s history,” says Lindsey Bavin, Museum Curator of the Community Museum “ever since the Henry VIII sealed the Charter granting a Valentine’s Day fair in 1537 it has been celebrated with only a few missed years due to plagues, or wars. Locally however The Mart is also known for “Mart Weather ” so we wanted to create a weatherproof option for families which also has the bonus of being free.’

Activities will take place between 10:30am-12noon and 1pm-3:00pm. The museum is open Tuesday-Saturday, 10:00am-4:00pm (last admission 3:30pm).
