Fantasy, Myths & Legends

Fantasy, Myths & Legends


Our event themes are always inspired by great stories. This week, our fun-packed activities take inspiration from some of the oldest and most magical tales ever told.

You'll get the chance to:

- Become Mad Hatters as you make crazy hats
- Unravel the Secrets of the Sphinx to find the treasure
- Create a Wild Thing marshmallow monster
- Become an adventurer: design & construct a mini raft
- Complete your hero training with Hercules
- Develop your magic skills, creating Potter's potions
- Sign up for dragon-training school with Zog and the Flying Doctors
- Become a mini doctor & make your own 'medicines', plus so much more!

Activities are run by our talented team of performers and can include model-making, drama, puppetry workshops, treasure hunts, silly science and much more!

On sunny days we'll be hosting activities outside in our revamped Secret Garden.
Plus you can head out at any time to perform on the outdoor stage, climb up on the Giant's Chair, cross the troll's bridge, scribble on the chalkboard, sit in the tree-stump circle or just relax in the sun!

Age Range:
School holidays events are primarily aimed at children aged 4+.
But there will also be preschooler-friendly activities aimed specifically at children aged 2 to 4.
