Join Museum Of The Home In The Garden For Its Summer Party

This is a sponsored article on behalf of Museum of the Home.

Museum of the Home's Summer Party is like a village fete, with added surprises along the way.

Been to east London's Museum of the Home lately? Refreshed and reopened in 2021, it tells the story of the place where we spend much of our lives, by way of historically-recreated rooms, engaging exhibitions, talks and much much more. And this July, it's welcoming everyone out into the garden for a family-friendly Summer Party!

Channeling traditional village fete vibes, Museum of the Home's Summer Party invites you and the kids onto its lush lawns, for a day of giant board games, bouncy castles, locally-crafted gifts and treats, children's entertainment, and raffles with prizes you'll really want to win. It's a lively, celebratory way to spend the day and an excellent opportunity to mingle in a warm and inclusive environment.

Museum of the Home is in a picturesque location, right by Hoxton Overground station.

This isn't your average garden party though; there's also lip-smackingly delicious Guyanese and Lebanese food on offer from Roti Brothers and Lil Watan — as well as alcoholic and non-alcoholic refreshment from the likes of local beverage maestros Luke's Cider and Signature Brew, and English wine purveyors, The Uncommon.

And the party's not done there; Big Fish Little Fish will also be pumping out one of their legendary family raves — complete with bubble machines and fancy dress. Now THAT'S what we call a party!

Anything else? Oh yes — you'll also be able to explore the Museum of the Home, a fascinating place housed in picturesque 18th century almshouses (handily located right next to Hoxton Overground station). Take the kids on a time travelling adventure by walking through living rooms from different time periods; visit the Hackney of 2050, as imagined by local school kids with the Tomorrowland exhibition; and explore the role of children in the home throughout history with Rhymes Through Time. There's plenty more to see and do, too!

One more thing: buying tickets to the Summer Party directly supports the museum's food equality campaign, which educates and informs how we can all address food poverty and scarcity.

Museum of the Home Summer Party, Saturday 1 July 2023, 11am-4pm. £7 adults (£5 concessions) and child goes free. £25 family ticket with Big Fish Little Fish rave (up to two adults, three children).
