Sidmouth Museum activity fun
Sidmouth Museum rounds off season with final children’s activity day
CHILDREN enjoyed a story and craft session at Sidmouth Museum on Wednesday, the last of this season before the museum closes for the winter.
Storyteller Claire Viner kept youngsters enthralled with her fairy and folklore tales.
These included stories of the amber comb, a magical comb used by mermaids that can call fairy people from the ocean.
Nearby, outside Kennaway House, the cast of Smuggler’s Gold, a Jurassic Coast heritage touring project, was performed in conjunction with events at the museum.

The show is touring 50 venues this summer and tells the story of Bill Widger, an Axmouth fisherman, whose house on an imaginary cliff-top is falling into the sea.
In the story he re-visits his family history and the stories of the Great Landslip of 1839.
