October Half Term

A better world is possible!

As the world prepares for COP26 in Glasgow, it's all about sustainability and climate action this Half Term holiday. 

We're looking at the personal actions we can all take for a more sustainable future, and having plenty of fun along the way.  

The activities below are free with your day ticket. They don't need to be pre-booked, but as each activity has limited capacity, please arrive early to avoid disappointment.

You can also add a Planetarium show to your visit. Booking is essential, so don't forget to add tickets to your basket along with your day tickets.

Whilst we're doing all we can to provide activities as listed, the timings below are subject to change. Please check when you arrive at the venue.
