A BANGOR museum and gallery is preparing for a #HistoricHalfTerm as the countdown begins for the Welsh Museums Festival.

This year, there will be a mix of fantastic live events at museums across the length and breadth of the country, as well as online activities to enjoy, between October 23-31.

As always, there will be delights for young and old, and most will be free.

Storiel museum and gallery in Bangor is excited to be joining the line up by offering a dragon hunt and slate decorating activity to celebrate the new World Heritage Site Status of the slate regions in Gwynedd.

A baby dragon has hatched and run amok in the museum and sharp, and with young eyes needed to help track it down, Storiel is encouraging children to come and help find the dragon and return it to the wild so that it can grow big and mighty like that on the Welsh flag.

The time travel begins at Storiel on Saturday, October 23 and ends on October 30. Full programme details are available on the Eventbrite website at: www.eventbrite.co.uk (search for ‘Storiel’).

The Welsh Museums Festival is funded by Welsh Government, an annual event presented by the Federation of Museums and Art Galleries of Wales, which is the advocacy body for museums and galleries and those working in this sector within Wales.
