Manchester’s Pankhurst Centre has announced a series of family friendly activities as the venue goes green for half term.
The Pankhurst Centre has revealed a series of activities designed to celebrate the joys of nature, including creating wildflower seed bomb necklaces and a new garden trail.
Visitors will have the opportunity to make a wildflower seed bomb necklace, which they will be able to take away with them to spread some guerrilla gardening love. Sowing British wildflowers improves biodiversity as well as adding natural beauty and the seed bombs can be used to rewild a bare patch, or add a spot of colour to a garden or green space.
In the suffragette inspired garden a new garden trail awaits exploration, with clues to follow and discoveries to be made. If the sun is shining this is also the perfect spot to enjoy refreshments from the tearoom and saviour the surroundings. The garden is designed to be like an Edwardian knot garden, in reference to the time period that Emmeline Pankhurst lived in the house with her family, and the planting mirrors the suffragette colours with reds interjected to symbolise the hardship endured during the for votes for women campaign.
There is the museum to explore, including a visit to the parlour where the first meeting of women who would become known as the suffragettes took place, and the shop where (whilst stocks last) seeds collected from the garden will be available to purchase.
When will the Pankhurst Centre go green for half term?
The Pankhurst Centre is offering the series of family friendly activities on Sunday 28 May, Thursday 1 June and Sunday 4 June.
