Family Fun Weekend of nostalgia at Redcar

People will be able to relive their youth at the Kirkleatham Museum as it celebrates the success of its current toy exhibition with a Family Fun Weekend.

Toys, games and familiar objects from every decade from the 1950's to the present day are featured in the Memories of Childhood exhibition.

The exhibition features from: 1950's, Wells Fargo and Robin Hood board games; 1960's, Action Man, Cindy and Scalextrix; 1970's Star Wars and Sooty; 1980's Rubik's Cube and Transformers; 1990's Buzz Lightyear and Teletubbies; and examples of modern day toys like Bionicles, Dr Who and Sony Play Stations.

There is a living room setting where people can read newspapers from the 1960's and showings of children's television favourites Dangermouse and Rainbow.

The Family Fun Weekend takes place on August 11 and 12. There will be a 30 stall craft fair, bouncy castle, face painting, live music, miniature steam train rides, remote control car displays and children's craft activities.

On Sunday a collection of vintage and classic motorcycles and cars will also be at the Museum.

Children will be able to enter a competition to guess how many balloons are inside a Harry Potter type Ford Anglia car.

The event is open from 10am until 4pm on both days.

Entry to both the Museum and Fun Weekend is free
