About this event

When: 3 to 6 April, 11 to 14 April, 10am to 5pm (last entry 4.30pm)

Join us this Easter for an egg-stravaganza of family fun!

Complete Easter-themed crafts in the museum, and follow a trail for a small (edible!) prize. Crafts and trails are free with no booking required, just drop in.

We’re also offering our free interactive storytelling sessions for families. Storytelling is free, but must be booked ahead. 

Please keep in mind, we are closed on Bank holidays and weekends.

Storytelling sessions for families:

Just how much gold is in the Bank of England vaults? Has any of it ever been stolen? 

Join our resident storyteller for a free interactive storytelling session that explores different aspects of the Bank’s work and history – some of which might just surprise you! 

Designed for children aged 7 to 11, the sessions combine storytelling, drama and role-play to bring different aspects of the Bank’s history to life.

Gold vault break-in 

Deep beneath the Bank of England there is a vault full of gold. Impenetrable they say…no gold has ever been stolen… but does that mean that no one has ever broken in? 

This Easter half-term, join us for the tale of a gold vault break-in at the Bank of England. Could it be true, or is it a work of fiction… we’ll let you decide. 

Tuesday 4 April at 11am and 2pm

Tuesday 11 April at 11am and 2pm
