Make yourself a mask for Grantham Carnival at Grantham Museum

Have your say

Get ready for this year’s Grantham Carnival by heading to Grantham Museum next weekend and creating your own carnival mask.

The museum will be open on Saturday, June 8 and children can go along to make their own mask or headdress for the following week’s carnival.

Helen Goral, chairman of Grantham Museum, said: “It’s important that the museum supports local initiatives, and we’d like do our bit to encourage more people to come to the carnival.”

Doors open at 10am and children can make their creations out of a variety of materials in preparation for the carnival itself.

On the same day, the museum will be holding a second hand sale of clothes, books and toys, as well as having a tombola to raise money for the museum.

Helen said: “It costs nearly £2,000 a month to keep the museum open and we rely heavily on members of the public and the local community to help us. Anyone who wants to donate prizes for the tombola or has any items for the secondhand sale are encouraged to drop them into the museum Thursday to Saturday, 10am to 4pm.
