HAPPY DAYS

Mansfield Museum Exhibition

By Pauline Marples

7 August - 27 November

It's Free to get in!

This exhibition includes plenty of activities for even the tiniest visitor, including a sand-pit and toy corner with lots to keep your young charges occupied whilst you reminisce about your own childhood days.

If you live too far away to visit the exhibition then we hope you will enjoy seeing a little of it in the photographs - maybe you would like to add a comment with your own memories of happy childhood days.
