October Half Term 2021

27 October - 31 October 2021

This half term, families dropped in for spooky Halloween treats, got creative with our new activity packs and explored our free exhibitions.

Kids dressed in Halloween costumes received a free hot chocolate and spooky cake!

Our dedicated children’s area is full of a variety of books exploring Black History Month.

The little ones also played with a new magnetic busy board, specially commissioned by the artists Playset.

Our cafe served a range of kid-friendly food and provided a great spot for children to play while parents relax.
