Children get behind the shop counter these school holidays

These school holidays, children are invited to get behind the shop counter of Susannah Place Museum's re-created c1915 corner shop!

This is a special opportunity for children to don an apron and become shopkeepers. They learn how to wrap an egg, weigh out goods on a scale and count in pounds and shillings!


Suitable for ages 5 and up, the interactive Playing Shop activity will see your little one:

  • Use an old-fashioned shop scale

  • Pack up goods, including making a paper cone for the lollies they'll be taking home

  • Filling an order and making a 'delivery'

  • Writing up orders on a slate board

  • Creating your own dolly peg shopkeeper.

    Tickets for Playing Shop are now on sale through - choose from the following sessions:

  • Tuesday16 April 2019, 9.30am–11am & 11.15am–12.45pm

  • Thursday 18 April 2019, 9.30am–11am & 11.15am–12.45pm

  • Tuesday 23 April 2019, 9.30am–11am & 11.15am–12.45pm

    Please note children must be accompanied by an adult.
