Postcard Prize Draw October 2023

Published: 10 October 2023

Can you guess what’s missing?

These postcards from Leicester Museums & Galleries have been sent to every Leicester city primary school this week, one for each child. The aim is to encourage families to come and explore Leicester Museums & Galleries to enjoy all we have to offer for families, mostly for free.

We hope children will visit to find out if they guessed right about what was missing from our picture of William Hogarth’s ‘The Wollaston Family’. Come and find this painting in the Victorian Gallery at Leicester Museum & Art Gallery.

If your child received a postcard they can enter our free prize draw to win a curriculum enrichment session for their class. Just pop some details on your postcard and drop it in at reception when you visit. Prize draw closes on Sunday 7 January 2024.

Did you know that we also have a free children’s holiday club at Leicester Museums?
