Toddler Takeover: Creature Capers (SOLD OUT)

Please note, this event is now SOLD OUT! The next date will be 8 Feb.


Flappy wings, dancing at the Beautiful Bug Ball, deely bobbers, starry skies and story telling for our next Toddler Takeover! 

A whole day of activities dedicated to little ones as we dive headfirst into the world of wonderful wildlife. Get creative and make a brightly coloured bug accessory to wear home and flap your wings and shake your antennae at the Beautiful Bug Ball - animal-themed dance moves totally encouraged! Visit our story telling sessions filled with actions and props. 

There won't be any school groups around the exhibits so the whole space will be free to roam around for families. Fly around the stars and planets in our Planetarium show, 'Space Explorers' especially for under 5s (add on to your ticket for £2.50 each)
