Get Crafty with Frankie Feathers

Get crafty with Frankie Feathers in our Discovery Zone this summer.

Choose your favourite music character and colour them in to be in with a chance of winning an annual pass for you and your family (2 adults and 2 children).

What Would Frankie Say Now?

Frankie Goes to Hollywood were famous for their black and white slogan t-shirt designs in the 1980s.  Back in 1984, the t-shirts said 'Frankie Say Arm the Unemployed' and 'Frankie Say War! Hide Yourself' - you can see them, and lots of others inside our Frankie Say 1984! exhibition cabinets 


If you were designing a new slogan for 2021, what would Frankie Say now?  Design your own Frankie Say slogan fit for a modern-day t-shirt.

Guitar Heroes

Rock stars have played some pretty crazy guitars over the years - just take a look at Noel Gallagher's Union Jack guitar in our Britpop cabinet as an example.  Design your own guitar for a band or artist you love, or maybe even for yourself! 


Craft activities are suitable for all ages.  Please note, our Discovery Zone is an unsupervised area and children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Star Café Challenge

Can you name all of the famous faces staring down at you from the walls of our Star Café? Just for fun, we're challenging all you family music enthusiasts. Come in to the Star Café, have a drink and snack and put your music skills to the test.


Suitable for the whole family
