Not to be confused with the famous road in Westminster, the Whitehall Museum is a beautifully timber framed Tudor house built circa 1500 in Cheam Village. In 1978, it was turned into a public museum, by volunteers, who call themselves The Friends of Whitehall. The museum provides daily activities for children, such as dress-up, and the chance to play with traditional toys. It also has a tearoom, which has been nominated as one of the top ten in Surrey.

To celebrate the museum's thirty-fifth birthday, The Friends of Whitehall, are putting on a Floral Fair on the 15th June. It is not quite as big a milestone as the Chelsea Flower Show's hundredth year anniversary, but still well worth honouring. And why? Because it is a chance to have fun.

The museum will be open at its usual Saturday opening hours of 10am-5pm, and there will be a market full of stalls selling plants, books, cake (undoubtedly from their top ten tea room), gifts, toys, and other fancy goods. From 11am there will be performances from the Pennyroyal Clog Dancers, as well as an elocution lesson from the florist, Eliza Doolittle. There will also be a floral arrangement demonstration. and the opportunity to take part in fun quizzes, games, and a raffle.
