Join us at Cartwright Hall, Bradford Industrial Museum, Cliffe Castle, and Bolling Hall between the 6th and 7th May to celebrate the King’s coronation!

At Cartwright Hall, we have a family trail, ‘The King’s Pants’ – based on the children’s book by the author Nicholas Allan. We have a copy of the book to give away, kindly donated by the author! To mark the day of the coronation, on the 6th May we’ll have other activities including decorating a crown and colouring activities. We’ll do a book reading of the book at 11.30am and 2.30pm.

At Bradford Industrial Museum, Bolling Hall, and Cliffe Castle, we will be making and decorating a King’s crown, plus other activities.


(Please note that all of our sites will be closed on the 8th May.)
