Fun And Frolics At The Herbert

The building might be more modern than many others in this year's Heritage Open Days, but there is a treasure trove of history waiting to be discovered at the Herbert Art Gallery.

People will be able to look at the hidden wonders of Coventry's history on tours of the museum stores on Saturday.

They run at 10.30am, 12.30, 1.30 and 3.30pm and must be booked in advanced.

Pru PorrettaOn Sunday at the same times there will be Godiva tours of the museum, showing off the range of paintings of the famous lady.

Coventry’s modern day Lady Godiva, Pru Poretta, will be accompanying the tour to bring to life the history and the myths surrounding the naked protestor.

This will be followed by workshops that are fun for the whole family.

To book either event call Clayton Shaw on (024) 7683 1701.

Fuel problems permitting, traditional Morris dancing will greet visitors to the museum when Coventry troupe Elephant Up A Pole take to the square fronting Earl Street on Saturday.

They will be dancing with their blackened faces and a range of sticks, trowels and ribbons between 12pm and 2pm.

And on Sunday the entertainment will be performed by strolling Elizabethan minstrel Dante Ferrarra, who will play a range of period instruments while dressed in 16th century costume.
