Durham County Records Office

Durham County Record Office’s fourth annual family fun day, on Friday, 8 June, will give visitors the chance to don 16th Century costumes and try their hand at skills from yesteryear.
Youngsters can make their own medieval seal and find out more about the toys and games children played with in the past.

There’s even a £10 book voucher up for grabs for the creator of the most colourful illuminated letter.

The free event, which runs from 9.30am to 12.30pm, will also give visitors of all ages a rare opportunity to take a look in the County Hall strong rooms, where the archives are kept.
