Special Heritage Visit and the Family Activities for Summer

Bugs and Beasties with our fun and free Family Activities at Bruce Castle

Special Event: Heritage Visit to St Philip The Apostle Church · Friday 5 August, 10.30am

Come along and explore the history and beautiful Edwardian interiors of St Philip The Apostle, in Philip Lane N15. Designed by the prolific church architects J.P & J.E.K. Cutts and built by the Dove Brothers of north London, you will also see the exquisite stained glass window by William Morris & Co (installed 1926), showing the Magi/ Three Wise Men bringing gifts to the infant Jesus. The window was based on a popular design that was originally created by Pre-Raphaelite artist Edward Burne-Jones with input by William Morris.

You can read a little more from the local newspaper about when the church opened in 1906 here, on the Stones of Haringey website.

And our Free Summer Holiday Activities for Families …

Over the summer you can find out about Bugs and Beasties with our fun and free Family Activities at Bruce Castle. Head down to Bruce Castle in August and find out all about mini beasts and creepy crawlies. Dress up, explore a range of stories, try your own bug-hunt in the park and add your finds to our big bug board in the Museum!

Activities are during the Museum’s opening hours (Wed-Sun 1-5pm), throughout August.

For all details of our Activities, see the attached poster or check out our new website here, which also lists other resources for Families @ The Castle.
