Children and adults trying out Capoeira during a sleepover at the museum.
I’d like to say a big thank you from myself and the Membership team for your four Capoeira sessions and superb demonstration at the sleepover this weekend. The sessions went really well and the Young Friends enjoyed themselves immensely.
