In Events

It’s the first school holiday of the year, so naturally, there are plenty of fun things to choose from to amuse your little ones! As different areas of the country take their school breaks at different times, we thought we’d sift through some of the many events that are going on all over the UK and offer our suggestions, so wherever you are, you can get inspired with things to do during half term.

In Cheshire there’s an event especially for the toddlers in the family, Toddler’s Story time admission is included with the price of your ticket into the Ness Botanic Gardens, find out more here.

If you’ve got some Peppa Pig fans in your life, head to Bourmemouth and enjoy Peppa Pig’s Best Day Ever! 

If they’re more curious, take a trip to an Experitots session, held once a month at the Science and Industry Museum in Manchester, these multi sensory sessions are great for getting hands on with the displays. Alternatively, Woolaton Park have teamed up with the Nottingham Festival of Science and Curiosity to hold a range of free science activities during their Family Fun weekend.
