On Thursday I went to the British Museum to see a friend tell some more stories. One of their major
Treasures from Heaven and so she was telling stories of saints, pilgrims and miracles. The room she had to use was awful - a through way with lots of noise but she still did a brilliant job. The kids got to sit on a kind of 'magic carpet' at the front and it was wonderful to see their faces as she spun her tales of dragons, St. George, gold and other stories. She will be there every Thursday during the summer holidays so if you have a young child that likes that sort of story it would be a great place to go. There were other activities going on in the Great Court to do with the exhibition such as making pilgrim badges so it could be a good escape for a couple of hours and, of course, there are always the mummies.
