A group of students became keepers of the objects for a day.

Year 8s from King Harold Business and Enterprise Academy transformed Epping Forest District Museum as part of a takeover day.

They worked with museum staff in a series of workshops and preparation days, to learn more about the day to day running of the museum.

The students also put together a special exhibition from items in the museum's WWI collection, adding to the current ‘Walter Spradbery, Artist in War and Peace’ exhibition.

The students' addition will be on display until the exhibition closes on December 22.

A series of activities linked to the exhibition included a Spradbery themed quiz and medal making.

Visitors, including Epping Forest District Council Chairman Councillor Richard Bassett, took part activities and were taken on a tour of the museum.

Takeover Day is a national celebration created by Kids in Museums of young people’s contributions to museums, galleries, arts organisations, archives and heritage sites.
