Seasonal Activity

Each seaon, we aim to provide an interactive and fun activity for children whilst exploring th eAbbey. This may be in line with the seasons more as we know them - summer and winter or it may be a liturgical season such as Advent or Christmas.

This summer's activity is in line with the On Angel Wings installation in the Abbey which have been on display throughout the summer and will remain until 14th October where we will introduce a Halloween activity! 

When you come to the Abbey, ask at the Welcome Desk for a fact fidget and map for the children in your group. The fact fidget (as seen in the picture above) has 8 faces and corresponds to numbered locations on the map. Once you have arrived at the location on the map, flip the fact fidget the number of times the map suggests and find out a fun fact about that area.
An origami angel is hidden at each location. There are 8 angels to find and one angel is particularly shy and requires a bit of extra looking! Once you have found all 8 angels, go round to the shop for your free prize! 

We hope you enjoy the children's activity and the On Angel Wings installation and look forward to welcoming you along during opening hours;

Monday - Saturday 10am - 4pm

Sunday 11am - 3pm
