WORLD War Two is the theme of Easter holiday sessions being held next week at the Museum of St Albans.

They run from next Tuesday, April 14, to Friday, April 17, and are all for eight to 13-year-olds except for Tuesday's session which is for six to 13-year-olds.

Various creative sessions will be held at the museum in Hatfield Road and they cost �4 each in advance by either calling in or phoning 01727 819340.

�� Children accompanied by adults are invited to step back into life in April 1509 during a one-way workshop at the museum on Saturday, April 18, entitled The King is Dead, Long Live the King.

They will meet a Tudor merchant and his wife and hear the news they have to tell about the death of Henry VII and the new king, his son Henry. They will then find out what interests he has, what life was like at the time as well as dress up as a Tudor and make a lavender bag or heraldic shield.

The workshop runs from 11am to 4.30pm and the cost of making the lavender bag or shield is �1.
