February half-term: Doodletastic adventures with Tom Gates

Thank you for joining us for our February half-term Doodletastic adventures with Tom Gates!

We partnered with the team behind Tom Gates, the popular book and TV series by author and illustrator Liz Pichon, to host an amazing half-term programme bursting with EPIC creativity, colour, FUN and imagination.

Get creative!

We’ll be inspiring children to get creative Tom Gates-style with plenty of epic art activities and fun things to make and do!

Make your mark on our wacky food sculptures in the Med Biome, and follow a BRILLIANT bug trail through the Rainforest Biome leaving no leaf unturned! Settle down with a Tom Gates classic book in the cosy reading nook in preparation for World Book Day, and get imaginative in our SUPER drawing workshop in the Tipis. Don't forget to enter our bug trail anagram competition for the chance to win a Tom Gates goodie bag!
