Find out what kind of game player you really are when you visit this free exhibition on loan from the V&A's Museum of Childhood.

This interactive exhibition includes some of the most iconic, enthralling and visually striking games from the V&A's outstanding national collection of board games, with more than 100 objects from all around the world. Alongside family favourites such as Cluedo and Trivial Pursuit, and traditional games like chess, the exhibition will look at historical board games including 'The Game of the Goose' and other beautifully designed games from the 18th and 19th centuries.

With hands on activities and the chance to become part of one big interactive game, come and delight in old favourites, and get your game face on.

To celebrate the opening of Game Plan, a regular, free Thursday Puzzle & Games Club has been launched for all ages at St Martin's Church Rooms in Ongar and booking will soon be open for a busy half term programme of activities for children and young people.

Epping Forest District Council's games-inspired half term activities will be listed on
