This February, The Bishop’s Palace will kick off its annual children’s activities programme with a fun-filled February Half Term.
2019 will see a few changes to the regular holiday activities, with the popular family craft sessions moving to a Tuesday. The sessions will be called “Crafty Cats” and will take place every Tuesdays during school holidays in the medieval Undercroft.
This February Half Term, the family activities will be based around an “Outer Space” theme, with a children’s space-themed trail running throughout the holiday week, leading little ones on a journey around the Palace and Gardens.
On Tuesday 19th February, Crafty Cats will be making all things space-related, with alien masks, constellation lanterns and flying rockets amongst the activities on offer. The session will run from 10:30am-3pm and families can drop in at any time.
This year, our popular ‘Nature Ninjas’ sessions, which take place in the Gardens, will be held on Thursdays, giving children the chance to get up close with a range of nature experiences such as pond dipping, minibeast hunting and seed sowing. Come along on Thursday 21st February between 11am-3pm to try out the first session of the year.
Don’t forget we have the fabulous Dragon’s Lair where little ones can let off steam on the natural play equipment, whilst exploring the themes of the Palace. The Bishop’s Table café also has a great range of children’s meals and snacks, along with plenty to keep the grown ups happy too.
Family activities are included in standard admission and under 5’s are always FREE.
