Celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in Charnwood

I enjoyed all the colouring and the printing on the fabric. I really liked making the flags and thought it was interesting learning about the Queen's life. I’d love to do something like this again

I enjoyed learning about the Queen. I found it interesting learning about how she became the Queen and more about her family. I enjoyed learning about it so much that I did some more research at home.

They’ve been putting their research skills to the test to find out more about the Queen’s life and have gotten creative in an arts workshop, having a go for the first time, at fabric printing. Featured in the exhibition includes a timeline highlighting the Queen’s key life events and visits to Leicester City, along with some fantastic arts and crafts work inspired by the Queen and the Royal family. You can now visit the exhibition at Charnwood Museum which is open Wednesday – Saturday 10am-4pm, Sunday 1pm-4pm.

This group is run by Leicestershire County Councils Adult Learning Services (LALS), who support local people with multiple and complex learning disabilities through independent living and Skills for Life Courses.

The Participation Team are delighted to work in partnership with the Service to provide access to exciting and flexible cultural volunteering opportunities.
