YOUNGSTERS can enjoy an egg-citing fortnight of fun at Rugby Art Gallery and Museum this Easter holiday.

From Saturday, the museum will be challenging visitors to find hidden Easter chicks, with the winner scooping a prize.

On Tuesday, youngsters can be kept entertained by making their own Easter bonnets.

Other events will also be held throughout the holiday, including making toys and jewellery and even creating a Roman chariot.

Rugby Borough Council spokeswoman for culture, coun Heather Timms said: “Rugby Art Gallery and Museum has a wide range of events and activities to keep young, creative minds entertained throughout the school holidays.

“The programme always proves popular and it’s the perfect opportunity to discover all that the cultural hub of Rugby has to offer.”

Those taking part in both the free and paid for events must be accompanied by an adult.
