Summer family activities

Start: Thursday 7 July, 2.00pm - End: Thursday 25 August 2022, 3.30pm

Join us every Thursday afternoon in the school holidays for hands-on family activities. 

We’ll be running different fun and creative activities in the gardens and museum each week. We’ll also have giant outdoor games each session (weather permitting) and trails.

Children must be accompanied by an adult. Please bring weather-appropriate clothing for outside activities. There’s no need to book. Just turn up and have fun!
