About this event

10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Bolling Hall Museum

The book of nursery rhymes has fallen off the shelf at Bolling Hall Museum and the characters have spilled amongst the displays.
This is an exhibition for young and old alike. Alongside the nursery rhymes which have been brought to life with the help of the displays, we are also delving into the history and possible origins of some of the rhymes. Many of the nursery rhymes that appear innocent on the surface may have deeper, darker meanings!
On your visit will you spot the mouse from Hickory Dickory Dock climbing one of the clocks? Pussy Cat Pussy Cat hiding under a chair? Or Jack jumping over a candlestick?
Please follow us @BradfordMuseums on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for activities and insights behind the Rhyme or Reason exhibition.
