Here’s what you need to know:

This is a family learning event —activities are for supervised children aged 3—12 years. Parents/carers are expected to stay and join in but don’t pay.  You just need to book a ticket for each child (not the adult). Numbers are limited to 20 children per session – book in advance to avoid disappointment, using the on-line link to wegottickets displayed above.

Dress appropriately for the weather, since the session will take place mainly outside. Bring a drink and a snack, or bring your packed lunch if you’d like to have a picnic at Martineau Gardens (after the morning session or before the afternoon one). Martineau Gardens serves hot and cold drinks (for which donations are welcomed) but not food.
