As February Half Term approaches are you feeling stuck for something to do? No need to fret! We've got a whole week of fun lined up at Calderstones Mansion House with our latest Half Term Hijinks.
From Monday 17th to Friday 21st February, there's a ton of fun in store with reading and adventure galore, cake decorating, craft sessions, a Mad Hatter's Tea Party and much more. We're holding activities for all ages starting right from the little ones to big kids who are young at heart. So why not join in?

Each day has a different theme - so check out the info below to get a taste of what we have in store for you…

Monster Monday: Full of monster-themed stories including The Gruffalo.

Terrifying Tuesday: Be transported (if you dare) into the creepy world of Uncle Montague and his tales of terror!

Pirate Wednesday: Sail with Ro and Siobhan on our Pirate Picnic Adventure session full of piratey stories, Scurvy Sandwiches and lots of yummy treasures.

Cats vs Dogs Thursday: Which side are you on? Share some brilliant dog stories and cat tales and make your own cat and dog masks to take home.

Mad Hatter Friday: Come along to our Mad Hatter’s Tea Party for Alice in Wonderland escapades and nonsense galore. Join Ro and Siobhan to plunge through the rabbit-hole into a world of rhyming caterpillars, watch-bearing rabbits and, best of all… cake decorating!
