History Makers - Hull Fair Starts Early!

So Hull Fair is almost upon us and there are only a few days to go now! But for us here at the History Centre we started to get into the spirit early this year with our Hull Fair inspired History Makers event on Saturday 3 October.

We had an awesome turn out this month with 85 in attendance and hopefully everyone enjoyed it, the staff certainly did! With lots of help from everyone who attended we managed to make the best fairground Hull has ever seen. We had swinging pirate ships, dodgems, waltzers, ghost trains, houses of fun and so much more!

An awesome fun house!

On the crafting side, we had lots of beautiful and brightly coloured carousel horses, some fantastic helter skelters and some brilliant attempts at making lollipop ferris wheels.

Carousel horses galore!

Don’t forget to check out our Facebook page to see photographs from the event. Also a selection of the models made on the day will be on display at the History Centre until next month’s event.

Speaking of forthcoming events… we only have two more History Makers sessions left this year. On Saturday 7 November we will be making poppies as we learn about the annual Remembrance Day. Then it’s almost Christmas so on 5 December we will be experiencing a Victorian Christmas as we make cards, decorations and build all manner of Santa’s grottos!

We are also currently planning out 2016 History Makers programme. Let us know what your favourite session has been or if you have any suggestions for event themes. You can leave your feedback on our Facebook page.

But for now, enjoy Hull Fair and don’t eat too much brandy snap (at least not before going on the rides)!
