Board Game Extravaganza

We are introducing a pop-up board game area with new and classic games from the 10th December until the 31st January. An excellent pre- and post-Christmas hang-out spot for your friends and family to socialise, turn off you phones and spend quality time together.

The game area offers the chance to challenge yourself on your knowledge of brands with games such as The Logo Game, and ignite your brain power with favourite classics such as Monopoly, Scrabble and Connect4.

New board games will also be available. The Museum has teamed up with Big Potato Games, the Board Game company who rejected an offer from Dragons Den to pursue their success.

The adventurous players can explore a series of award winning games, from the ‘shouty-outy’ family fun of Linkee to the incredibly clever ‘whodunit’ Chameleon. A perfect opportunity for those with a with competitive edge.

Lunch, tea, coffee, beer and wine can be brought to the game area, available to purchase in the Museum café.

Entry to the Museum is £9 for adults, £7 for students and children under 7 years enter for free. Tickets include full access to the Museum’s displays of 150 years of consumer culture and temporary exhibitions such as Time Out 50: 50 Covers and Can Marketing Save Lives.
