Play Make Saturdays

We are excited to share the news that the Fitzwilliam Museum will soon be launching 'Play Make Saturdays', a free monthly make and play workshop for families, starting in May 2023.

'Play Make Saturdays' invites you to explore, play, create and have fun with materials in our Studio. Workshops are free and supported by the Fitz Families team. All materials are included and the workshops are suitable for children aged 5-12 years and their parents and carers.

There will be a choice of four 45-minute workshops each month. Due to popular demand, pre-booking is required. We will announce dates on our website, or sign up to our eNews to be the first to know.

Please note: Play Make Saturdays replaces Family First Saturday.

Families can also discover our collections through free resources that are available to collect on arrival from the Courtyard Entrance:

0-2 years
Pick up a Play Mat specially designed to entertain babies and toddlers. Contains carefully selected sensory objects that connect with themes and objects in the collection. Please return the Play Mat as you leave for others to enjoy.

2-6 years
Borrow a Story Starter containing a picture book and fun activities to use in the galleries. Please don’t forget to return the satchel to the front desk on your way out!

6-11 years
Grab a themed gallery trail to inspire you as you explore the Museum. From an interactive trail using artworks and objects to guide your journey through the galleries, to topics on colour, Egypt, and Shakespeare.
