Black Country Living Museum goes musical this half term

Visitors can tune in to a week filled with the sounds and songs of the past during the summer half term at the Black Country Living Museum.

The attraction will come alive with the sound of music from Saturday 25th May to Sunday 2nd June, between 10am and 5pm, with 'Tunes through Time', a music themed week-long event.

You can discover live musical performances happening daily around the Museum, including street theatre featuring ukulele toting buskers and musical miners. 

Children will be able to join in with traditional music-themed street games from ‘pass the parcel’ to ‘musical statues’. They’ll also be able to discover their inner virtuoso at a hands-on music lesson in the Edwardian school, playing a selection of musical instruments. A spokesperson for the museum said:

"You can take a trip back in time in the 1930s apartments with wartime music and radio shows and visit the Museum’s very own radio store, Gripton’s, to hear tunes from the first half of the 20th Century.

"With special performances, interactive sessions and opportunities find out more about the soundtracks of the past, there is enough going on to keep you humming all the way home - and don’t forget, you can use your 'UnChained' annual pass for this event and visit as many times as you like!"
