Once Upon A Time

Sunday, 26th March 2017 : 10am to 4pm


Join us at the British Horological Institute Museum on Sunday 26th March - the day the clocks ‘spring forward’. In celebration of Mother’s Day, which falls on the same day, we’ll be taking a look at a range of time inspired magical tales, mysterious wonders, traditional nursery rhymes and childhood favourites. We’ll be revealing some of literature’s hidden histories and links with timekeeping, showcased alongside a fascinating array of the Museum’s clocks, watches and timepieces, bringing popular writings to life. Explore the secrets hidden inside ticking treasures with our live clock and watch making demonstrations. Hands-on activities for the whole family including children’s trails and craft activities. Test your knowledge in our famous literary clocks quiz and browse book, craft and clock and watch inspired stalls! Try delicious homemade treats courtesy of the Vintage ‘pop-up’ Clock House Café- perfect for Mother’s Day.
