Toddler Takeover sessions: Colour Spectacular

Toddler Takeovers are back for the autumn! We've been wanting to be able to offer more places at Toddler Takeovers for a while and so we are trying a new way of doing things so that more of you can come and enjoy our toddler friendly activities.

You can now choose between a morning or an afternoon session. We will be opening at 9am so that each session will be three-hours long, giving you plenty of time to get stuck in and have fun with light and colour.

The exhibition floor will be closed between sessions (12-1pm) while we do a bit of a tidy up and restock the Kitchen ready for the next influx of little ones.


Colour Spectacular: What's on...

At our November sessions, little people will be able to:

  • Explore twinkly lights and make shadows in our light and darkness studio
  • Get creative and make some mess with autumn leaves
  • Join in with our lively and interactive story as we travel through a forest full of sights, sounds and smells. Use all of your senses and discover the loveliest things in the forest.


Planetarium shows:

Add a Planetarium show to your visit when you purchase your tickets for an extra £2.50 per person - take a trip to the stars in our Space Explorers show, or join Ursa the Bear for a Rocketship Adventure,

Morning shows are: 10am and 10.45 (Space Explorers), 11.30 (Rocketship)

Afternoon shows are: 2pm and 2.45pm (Space Explorers), 3.30pm (Rocketship)


How to book:

We often sell out for these events so booking is essential. If you are a member, you do still need to book a ticket as spaces are limited. Please give us a call and we can book you in. 

If you're not a member you can book online for the morning session or the afternoon session; or give us a call on 0117 915 1000! 

The Early Bird price is available until Friday 15 November, when tickets will revert to the full price (£9.20 adult / £7.20 child 3+)


Please note: the picnic area will also be closed between 12.30pm and 1pm. Our cafe will be open as normal throughout the day.
