Make a Money Box at People’s History Museum
As the PHM’s flagship Show Me The Money exhibition starts to wind down, they’ve put on this family friendly activity. Young savers are invited over to the craft table to make a money box, drawing from a full box of art materials and their own furtive imaginations. While you’re there, it’s well worth checking out the exhibition itself, which looks at money and finance through the ages, before it closes its doors at the end of January.
Fri 19 Dec – Sun 3 Jan, People’s History Museum, Left Bank, Manchester, M3 3ER. Tel: 0161 838 9190, www.phm.org.uk

The Wicked Path at Odd Bar (pictured)
