More than 300 people attended the event, held on April 11, which gave visitors an insight into the sort of fun and games people enjoyed from the medieval period right through to the modern day.

The event was organised by the Norris Museum.

Hannah Vandrage, learning support officer at the museum, said: “It was a lovely day. We had a great turnout and there were lots of very happy and enthusiastic children playing with toys from the medieval times through the 1980s.

“We also had some fantastic re-enactors who taught us all how to dance and everyone got involved.”

The museum’s next event takes place on May 31, during the half-term, and is called Batty about Bats, organised jointly with the Holt Island Nature Reserve.
