The Beatles Story
As part of our Beatles in India year of events, our family workshops are free to attend. We will be running a Latern workshop in the October half term (on Tuesday 23rd and Thursday 25th 2pm – 4pm). Children are welcome to come along and we will support the Children’s University by offering this free workshop for an extra day on Sunday 21st October.
20% discount off all Curious About Walks using code "CU20%OFF" at checkout.
We can offer a discounted entry for children which is £4 per child which includes shoes. This would include unlimited climbing for the day. For children's safety we do have a policy that children must be supervised by an adult and the ratio is 1 adult to 2 children.
These are some of the Learning Destinations that have offers on but there are lots more to access.
Please remind children to remember to bring their Passport to Learning with them on the day so they can get some stamps in them.
This is a fab free opportunity for families to get out and about.
