Looking for something to do with the kids this October Half-Term?

Pop in and you’ll find our foyers lighting up with FREE crafty creative fun all week.

Join storytellers and artists for an entirely hands-on holiday experience that captures the darkness and light of Halloween and Diwali.

We have built the day so that you can drop in for an hour long session or stay with us the whole day. There is a variety of activities throughout the week and something different to take away each day. You might make Diwali lights or Halloween lanterns, ‘Trick or Treat’ masks or a cape of Autumn leaves – plus there will be spooky storytelling and more to inspire you, all for free!

This is a family event, and children from the age of five will probably get the most out of it, but we will do our best to keep toddlers entertained as well. Parents can grab a coffee and relax – or have a go at all the activities too.

Drop in between 10.30am – 4.30pm on Monday, Tuesday and Friday, and 10.30am – 1pm on Wednesday and Thursday.
