Following the latest government announcement, East Riding of Yorkshire Council has announced how East Riding Museums and East Riding Libraries will operate from Wednesday, 2 December, under Tier 3 restrictions.
East Riding Museums: Beverley Art Gallery, Skidby Mill, Beverley Guildhall, and Goole Museum will remain closed.
Young visitors to any one of the East Riding Museums venues can take part in the newly updated Creative Families Awards.
The Awards are specially devised for Under Fives, and are a precursor to the Arts Awards: www.artsaward.org.uk Families with young children, and Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) groups, are invited to take part.
East Riding Museums have unveiled even more activities for under 5s (including babies) and their families during this period when people are having to spend more time at home.
The new suggested activities – Boats, Windmills and Beverley Town – are inspired by Goole Museum, Skidby Mill, and Beverley Guildhall and feature ideas for music and signing, craft, role play, sensory experiences, and messy play.
Families and Early Years Foundation Stage groups can now take part in the Creative Families Award at any museum run by East Riding Museums.
Little creatives aged between one and four can take part in the Award during their visit to the museum, which could be Sewerby Hall and Gardens, Goole Museum, Skidby Mill, Beverley Guildhall, or also the Treasure House in Beverley.
Our Histories Revealed: African Stories in Hull and East Yorkshire is a new exhibition at Goole Museum from 5 February to 6 April which uncovers the history of people of African descent from 1750 to 2007.
These dates represent the period of history beginning with the era of the famous anti-slavery campaigner William Wilberforce and ending with the bicentenary of the Abolition of the Slave Trade.
