This Saturday (27 August) there will be a free children’s summer fair at the William Morris Society Museum on Upper Mall (W6 9TA).
The hosts will be joined by Benjamin Franklin House and Fulham Palace, for a morning of fun activities from 10am to 1pm
There will be a chance to get inspired by the William Morris Society’s latest exhibition on May Morris by recreating her Orange Tree in 3D form and creating beautiful tissue paper flowers.
Benjamin Franklin House will be exploring letters from the past with the chance to write your own 18th century letters using quills, ink and parchment.
Fulham Palace will be bringing along some mystery objects from the past. Get curious and guess what they are, who used them, and when and where you think they come from and there will be a chance to get into costume.
This is a free event, although, families are encouraged to book tickets in advance. There is a maximum capacity for each space, therefore families with pre-booked tickets will be prioritised for entry.
The William Morris Society exists to make better known the life, work and ideas of William Morris, designer, craftsman, poet and socialist. The Society’s premises are in the Coach House and basement of Kelmscott House, Morris’s Hammersmith home for the last 18 years of his life.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.
However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.
We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.
