My daughter loves pink and ponies. Turns out she loves duelling gladiators too.
Our half-term kicked off with a visit to a reenactment event at the Chiltern Open Air Museum. Throughout the season the museums hosts a range of events and reenactments and the Romans are always a favourite with us, although this was the first time we’d seen the gladiators, performed by Britannia.
Two-year-old Tilly is obsessed with babies of all kinds so the opportunity to visit newborn lambs wasn’t an opportunity we were going to pass up. The Chiltern Open Air Museum is one of our local attractions and it’s something of a favourite. It feels rather understated, nestling in woodland down a rather minor road and with a sizeable site that makes even busy days feel relaxed. The museum is based around a collection of historic buildings that have been relocated to the museum site and offer an authentic insight into life from the past. Whereas last year Tilly’s ability to interact with the museum was limited, this visit revealed she’s of an age to get a huge amount from a visit.
