The REAL nursery rhymes and songs – toddler to KS1, Fringe Feb

February 24 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

A-tishoo! A-tishoo! We all fall down! 

Most people know that Ring O’Roses is actually about the plague rather than just being a children’s song or game. But what’s hiding in the words of Jack and Jill? Or Goosey Goosey Gander? And how does it relate to Chippenham?

Join Lucy Whitfield with your young family for a fun play, craft and song session based on old nursery rhymes in the History Centre’s dedicated education room.

Kids will enjoy exploring these fun tongue-pleasers at face value, while their grown-ups can explore the meanings of these centuries-old words a little bit deeper.

  • Drop in and drop out as you please –  it’s totally free (donations always welcome).
  • Book tickets in advance here.


This event is part of a three-day arts festival happening around Chippenham from the 23rd-25th February. Find out more about Chippenham Fringe Feb 2024 and the other creative and vibrant Fringe performances and activities taking place by visiting here.
