Damian Dibben said: “The Takeover Team at Lincoln Castle were fabulous – and terrifying! The child tour guides put me in chains in the Victorian prison, the young front of house team checked my ticket and the whole group of 46 children chased me through the castle gates. When you put children in charge, exciting and wonderful things happen.”
Over 150 museums were run by almost 4,000 children for Takeover Day, doing the jobs adults usually do. They were pest controllers, tour guides, curators, conservators, interpreters, digital creators, front of house and worked in the shop and café.
Takeover Day is run by charity Kids in Museums.
