Escape At The Grafton’, The Grafton Centre, Cambridge, CB1 1PS

Discover the weird and wonderful world of languages!

The UK has a museum for dog collars and lawn mowers, but not for languages. This autumn an innovative ‘Pop-Up World of Languages’, the first UK pop-up museum of languages aims to fill this gap.

The public are invited to this free interactive exhibition uncovering hidden treasures of languages through family-friendly, hands-on activities and games. It opens in the Grafton Centre, Cambridge Saturday 19th October, until Sunday 27th, and promises to be a fun and educational family experience.
