Sixth Form Extra: Museum Visits
Twelve students will be making weekly visits to Maidstone Museum in a new activity added to Sixth Form Extra. They will be exploring two themed galleries a week. Their first visit looked at the fine art exhibits, including the Japanese gallery pictured here, as well as taking in the fascinating temporary exhibition on the folk tradition of ‘hoodening’, a tradition of causing havoc at festivals by dressing up as a wooden horse. It was a reminder of how lucky we are to have such an eclectic, free collection on our doorstep!
