Jubilee at the Realm of shells
This Half Term we’re celebrating Queens of all kinds, including our own drag queen Shelly Grotto, seen here at her recent Coronation event in the Altar Room.
Our conservator Rob Smith custom made Shelly her crown jewels and the royal collection will be on display - under lock and key naturally - in the Museum Room over Half Term. Inspired by Rob’s creations, we have hand-made paper crowns for children (and adults!) to colour and wear. We’ll have 70 to hand out every day from Monday 30th - we do like to treat everyone like Royalty here! Pre-booking for the Grotto is recommended.

We've put together a FAQs list so you can find out all about booking tickets, our COVID safety measures and what to expect from a visit to the Grotto.
