Fancy meeting a knight? Ever wondered what training armoured police have? Or what an armoured Police vehicle looks like? What about seeing equipment up close and personal?

Now’s your chance to learn all about arms and armour from today’s modern armoured Police to the brave Knights of the past! To learn all about the make-up and design of armour, go and meet our critters and creatures in our display on armour in nature, from Sammy the tortoise to Bruce the lizard, these little guys show armour off in its truest form. This day of family fun will be jam-packed. Visitors can see armoured vehicles through time up close, learning about their technology, purpose and history. For those looking for their Knight in shining armour, look no further! Visitors can meet our very own medieval men at arms and learn about historic arms and armour. These brave fellows will be joined by South Yorkshire Police who will be there to display and answer questions, they will be bringing  their equipment and expertise, so visitors can see the technology and training that protects us today!

For younger ones, why not make your very own riot shield or get artistic with some colouring?  Some of NESM’s collection will also be on special display with visitors able to handle real Prison swords and Victorian policing equipment.

This event is ideal for a weekend of family fun!
