DRAGONS, knights and princesses took centre stage when Rugby Art Gallery and Museum lowered the drawbridge for a Night At Thy Museum on Friday (May 18).
The museum was full to capacity with just under 500 visitors as the walking, roaring Dreckly Dragon roamed the corridors – with a courageous knight keeping Dreckly on best behaviour.
Visitors met the knight to learn about the medieval code of chivalry and valour, and entered the royal parlour for an audience with the princess, who revealed the rules of royal etiquette.
Tom the Tale Teller hosted magical, medieval story-telling sessions where visitors helped him weave tales sat around a cauldron, while Falconry Days brought birds of prey to take guests on a different flight of fancy.
Imaginative minds got creative by making medieval princess hats, crowns and shields, while younger visitors got messy at creative play sessions.
