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, plus an array of wonderful workshops!

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.
