A new exhibition entitled ‘Memories of Childhood’ will be on display at Lowewood Museum, Hoddesdon between 16 February and 1 June.

The exhibition explores the social history of childhood through themes of playtime, childcare, early learning and clothing.

From toys and games, to children’s TV and schooldays, the exhibition aims to bring back fond childhood memories.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a series of family events at the Museum including a craft workshop, ‘Make a Victorian Toy’, on Thursday 21 February, 12 – 3pm (repeated on Saturday 23 February, 12 - 3pm) and a Punch and Judy Puppet show on Saturday 25 May at 11.30am, 1.30pm and 3.30pm (each show lasts 30 minutes).
