The event will take place on Wednesday October 29 between 10am and 12 noon in the Stable Courtyard, TW5 9RZ.  You will also be able to make a souvenir Halloween clay decoration, and a Victorian toy to take home, have your photo taken as a Victorian brick worker, and learn more about this local industry.
