Get dressed up in your best witch or wizard costume and head along to Preston Park Museum for a magical day of fun this October half term. Can you help find the six magical creatures that have escaped and are hiding in the Victorian Street of the museum?

To capture them you will need to:

  • Make your own magic wand
  • Create a magic potion to help send the magical creatures back home
  • Print your own spell bookmark

Don’t forget to visit the real magical creatures during your visit! The owls from the North Yorkshire Moors Birds of Prey Centre will be visiting us everyday throughout October half term, as well as Animal Story on Sunday 24 October.
