Children's Fun Day in the Dungeon

Saturday 22nd August was a children's fun day in Stockport's Medieval Dungeon.

With games for the children and displays to send the parents and grandparents reminiscing, the biggest challenge was  to add the scores of the Roll-a-Penny game in old money.

There are still two open days left this year -

Sat 12th September will be part of the Heritage Open Days and the dungeon will be housing a display about Theatres, Cinemas and Music Halls.
17th / 18th Oct. The Viking Festival.

Watch this space for more information.
