A WORDSLEY tourist attraction will be going all medieval as part of an eggciting array of activities being laid on over Easter.

Knights will also be polishing their armour and getting ready to entertain families at the Red House Glass cone as part of a Medieval Easter Bash on Saturday April 12 and Sunday April 13 from 10am to 4pm.

They will be patrolling the site, demonstrating how knights used their weapons and answering questions on anything ranging from the code of chivalry to the finer points of jousting and armour preparation.

Visitors of all ages are also invited to dress up as knights, kings, queens, princes and princesses for the event - one of many cracking Easter activities line up for the holiday.

There will also be drop-in craft activities with Juniors at Museum, costing £2.25 per child.

On both days there will be open studios with the Made @ the Cone collective and ceramicist Sarah Cannings will be running sessions from 10am to 4pm on both days where youngsters can make a medieval tile or clay bomb for £5 per person.

The hot glass studio will also be running glassblowing demonstrations over the weekend from 10am to 4pm and every day over the Easter break from noon to 3.30pm.

Visitors can also look around the cone’s World War II exhibition which features dressing up outfits for youngsters including a pilot, nurse and soldier’s uniform.

Children will also be able to hunt for animals in free family trails which will be running every day at the cone from Sunday April 12 to Sunday April 27.

The Dudley Council run attraction is open from 10am to 4pm - Monday to Sunday, and admission is free.
