Making this Half Term Historic!

Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who participated in an amazing Takeover day on Thursday 10th November 

We had a record-breaking Takeover Day, with almost 50 museums, castles, historic homes, libraries and heritage sites across Wales being taken over. Over 1,000 children and teenagers were doing the jobs adults usually do.

The success of the event was amazing. The buzz carried on for days after and is still going! It was exciting to see what was happening all over Wales on social media and in the news. Check out our Storify to follow what happened on the day

We want to help you share your story

We’ve already received some wonderful photos and videos, but would like to see what everyone’s been up to. If you have any photos, videos, articles, blogs, quotes or comments that you’d be happy for us to share, please send them to

Also we’ll be in touch in the New Year to ask for feedback on your Takeover Day experience.

Remember, Takeover Day can happen at anytime

Were you unable to run Takeover Day in November this year? Would you like to do it again before November 2017? Don’t forget we support Takeovers that happen throughout the year, so take a look at our Factsheet pack to help you plan what you might do next. Then get in touch with the Takeover Day team on to access our support and register your event.
