Celebrate Jewry Wall Museum’s 50th Birthday!

Looking for something to do this weekend? Why not join the free festivities at Jewry Wall on Sunday 6th March (11.30am – 3.30pm) and help the museum celebrate its 50th Anniversary.

Jewry Wall Museum, Leicester’s only purpose-built history museum, opened its doors on 4th March, 1966. To celebrate, the Friends of Jewry Wall have organised a day full of fun events for all the family.

There will be:

  • Tours of the Roman Baths and the museum’s treasurers
  • Historical re-enactments
  • A talk on the story of the museum
  • A Roman coin die where you can strike your own anniversary souvenir
  • Children’s activities
  • Anglo-Saxon activities
  • Woad face painting
  • Dressing up as a Saxon warrior and a medieval knight
  • An ancient port pie and medieval ploughman’s lunch
  • And more…
