MakeIt! Summer Solstice

Know your henge from your dolmen!

Some of the oldest structures in the United Kingdom are henges, like Stonehenge in Wiltshire or dolmen, which are tombs made of giant slabs of stone that are covered in earth. Sometimes they line up with the sun, moon or stars at special times of the year, the summer equinox or solstice, when the sun rises above Stonehenge is famous the world over.

We’ll be making our own mini-henges in celebration of the summer solstice; suggested donation £2.50 per participant.

Activities run downstairs in our learning space (11am-12.45pm and 1.30pm-3.30pm) and are suitable for ages 4-11, but if you’re older or younger you’ll still be more than welcome.

No booking is necessary, although if it gets a little busy we may have limits numbers for everyone’s comfort and safety.
