Celebrate a Stay At Home Easter
Easter will be very different this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. If you usually celebrate the Bank Holiday weekend at church or by meeting with family and friends, this year you won't be able to due the Government restrictions on movement.
Our colleagues at Visit Bradford have come up with a great list of ideas for all ages to get involved in.
Activities from our Bradford Museums and Galleries Team
You Inspire me... Hockney
Get inspired by David Hockney’s recent image of daffodils, entitled: Do Remember They Can’t Cancel the Spring and create your own art using a free art online app. More information here.
You inspire me... Herbert Morley
Wannabe junior explorers can go on and imaginary adventure by searching for objects in their own home and writing an account of their journey or a postcard just like local Victorian explorer Herbert Morley used to do. More information here.
