Half Term Family Fun at The Palace

Half Term Family Fun at The Palace

This Half Term, The Bishop’s Palace & Gardens in Wells will kick off its yearly programme of Family Activities with two child-friendly events.

For 2016 the Palace has moved its Family Activity Days to Fridays due to the popularity of the events, previously held on Wednesdays, in 2015.

Events & Exhibitions Manager, Jonathan Sawyer, said “During 2015 we saw a huge increase in the numbers attending our Family Activity Days during the School Holidays. We took feedback from our visitors and found that many of our local families would prefer to come on a day that isn’t a Market Day, so that they can park in town more easily.”

The Family Garden Activities will take place on Mondays during 2016 and the Family Activity Days will take place on Fridays.

On Monday 15th February from 11am-3pm there will be a Family Garden Activity entitled ‘Plot Your Veg Plot’ in the Community Garden. Led by Community Gardener Amanda Clay, the session will focus on planning what to grow in your garden this year. Amanda will have advice, tips and hands on fun for all ages!

On Friday 19th February from 11am-3pm the first of our Family Fun Fridays will be based on the theme of ‘Birds’. Join our crafty team leaders to make bird feeders, feather fans and starling finger puppets, then take the chance to follow our ‘twitchers trail’ through the house and gardens, hunting for avian answers!

All activities are included in standard admission.
