Family Day Out at The Heath Robinson Museum

May 31 @ 11:00 am4:00 pm BST

To celebrate William Heath Morrison’s birthday, on Tuesday 31 May, all are invited to a fun-filled family day out on the lawns surrounding the museum, and to take part in wacky Heath Robinson inspired activities.

The birthday party will include a fair with stalls, games, exhibitions, activities and performances that relate to Heath Robinson (aka the Gadget King). Pit your wits against the engineering challenges: build the tallest structure, the strongest bridge or fastest/slowest/wobbliest vehicles out of junk or K’nex, Lego or Meccano.

There will be demonstrations of large interactive gadgets such as the cyclostomper. The star attraction will be the social media sensation Joseph Herscher who has performed worldwide in museums and at the Venice Biennale.

Joseph will give a talk about his machines, relating them to Heath Robinson’s gadgets and will run a workshop which challenges groups to build their own machine. Come and witness the culmination of Heath Robinson’s birthday celebrations – the valiant attempt to connect the machines in one long transfer of energy to achieve a simple task – Very Tricky. Very Silly. Very Heath Robinson!
