Perpetuating the memory of one of the greatest figures of the Victorian age

Children’s Summer Fete

July 30, 2021 11.30 AM - 3.30 PM at The Museum of Methodism & John Wesley’s House

*UPDATE* Unfortunately, due to staff being instructed to isolate, we are unable to attend the Children’s Summer Fete this year. It is still running with our fabulous friends from the heritage world, and we really look forward to being involved next year.
We are delighted to be taking part in the annual Children’s Summer Fete, with special guests from the world of heritage including Benjamin Franklin House, the Museum of Methodism & John Wesley’s House, Newington Green Meeting House and of course Arts & Crafts Hammersmith (a collaboration between the Emery Walker Trust and the William Morris Society), with each organisation offering a range of fun craft activities for families!

This year, children will have the opportunity to make their own kites with Benjamin Franklin House, pin badges to tell the world about issues they care strongly about with Newington Green Meeting House and a mini folded book with Arts & Crafts Hammersmith. Craft butterflies with The Museum of Methodism & John Wesley’s House and you can also make your own John Wesley and friends! There’ll be a courtyard ‘I-spy’ trail and don’t forget to join a free tour of John Wesley’s House, led by guides in costume.

The Fete will be held in the garden of Wesley’s chapel so bring a picnic to enjoy on the grass or benches! The main entrance is on City Road, however, a more accessible entrance which leads directly into the garden is located on Tabernacle Street. Find out more about the Museum of Methodism & John Wesley’s House here.

The Fete is free to attend but advanced booking is strongly advised to help us plan for the event. Families can join on a drop-in basis throughout the day, however, we will be limiting numbers to 30 at all times. We encourage adult visitors to wear masks and all attendees to maintain a level of distance from staff and other families. Hand sanitiser and sanitising wipes will be readily available on the day.
