A COLOURFUL cast of characters from three centuries ensured a fun end to history week at Weston Museum.

Re-enactors acted out scenes from the Tudor era, the 19th century American Wild West and World War Two at events held over half-term.

The events followed displays on the Roman and Medieval eras held at the museum in Burlington Street earlier last week.

Youngsters attending the events were able to try their hand on a variety of period items, ranging from 16th century spinning wheels to army rifles.
