If you go down in the woods today... you’ll find lots of teddy bear type fun to be had at Avoncroft Museum.

The museum is hosting a giant Teddy Bears’ Picnic this Bank Holiday Monday, 27 May, with guests invited to bring their cuddly friends along and enjoy a day of family fun.

There will be music and entertainment throughout the day, a prize for the best dressed bear, a guess the name of the teddy bear competition, as well as pony rides, swingboats and other rides, face painting, balloon modelling and of course the museum’s collection of historic buildings to mooch around. Hot and cold refreshments and light snacks will also be available throughout the day in our Edwardian tea room.

So pack your picnic hamper, grab your cuddly toys and head down to Avoncroft. And don’t worry if it rains, our Guesten Hall is perfect for a picnic!

The museum’s general admission fees apply and doors open from 10.30am until 5pm.
