As summer approaches we have two exciting craft workshops for children, one in the Shires Shopping Centre and another in the Guide Hut by the park.

Get Crafty in the Shires – Tuesday 26th May, 10.30 – 2.30
Join us in the Shires Shopping Centre for a day of free crafting.
Drop-in from 10.30 – 2.30
Suitable for all ages



Beautiful Beasties (in the Guide Hut) – Friday 29th May, 10.30 – 3.30
The laminator returns! We’re making colourful butterflies, bees, birds and other garden beasties – perfect for decorating your garden.
Drop-in from 10.30 – 3.30
Suitable for ages 5+
If you have a SEND child that would benefit from attending a quieter Beautiful Beasts activity then please call us and we will try to accommodate you.


Please Note: Spaces in our workshops are limited and they sometimes fill up quickly. If you would like to bring a group of 5 or more children or a larger childminding group please call in advance (01225 751339) and we will try to accommodate you. Where places can be reserved on Ticketsource there will usually be additional tickets available on the day, issued on a first come, first served basis.
All children under the age of 8 years must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Whilst we indicate a minimum age for each activity we are aware that younger children often attend with older siblings. We are generally happy for younger children to participate, but please be prepared to give them the support they require. We can provide paper and crayons to keep toddlers occupied – please ask us.
