Add a splash of colour to our historical scenes

Explore how it must have felt to be waiting in the small, damp holding cells underneath our Victorian Courtroom and colour a picture of a young Victorian waiting for his case to be heard. 

Or imagine yourself in a bustling factory during World War One, when local hat manufacturers E.Day & Co turned from making straw boaters to producing the vital pith helmets needed for soldiers fighting away in hot countries. Colour our local girl Ethel as she works hard to keep on top of the demand for the helmets.
