Hats and democracy during the school holidays
Come along to our ‘Hats-Off to Democracy’ workshop these July school holidays.
Learn intriguing ideas such as hat honour and why Quakers refused to take their hats off in the presence of the King. Discover some of the ingenious head gear worn by protesters in Egypt during the democracy uprisings.
Try on some costume hats from our collection, learn about the people who might have worn them—you can even make a special democracy hat of your own.
This is a free family-friendly activity, suitable for kids aged 5 – 12 and their carers.
