Parents looking for activities to entertain their children during half-term week can take advantage of craft sessions and a special quiz trail at Lydiard Park.
The Swindon Borough Council-owned historic park will have sessions for children running throughout half-term.
Kite making workshops will be held on Tuesday, 12 February, suitable for children aged seven and over. The workshop costs £5 per child and the hour-long sessions take place at 10am, 12noon and 2pm. Places need to be booked by either calling Lydiard Park on 01793 770401 or by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
On Thursday, 14 February, a ‘Lovely Lanterns’ children’s craft session will be held where those taking part can make a painted glass tea light holder. The session costs £3 per child and no booking is required. Children should visit the Coach House next to the Tea Rooms in Lydiard Park between 12pm and 3pm.
The State Rooms of Lydiard House are also hosting a new children’s quiz trail specially created for half-term visitors. Children can follow clues in the paintings and photographs on display to find out more about the pets and animals that were owned by the St John family in the past.
Lydiard House is open Tuesday to Sunday between 11am and 4pm. The quiz trail is included in cost of entry to the house and is available from Saturday 9 February to Sunday 17 February (closed Monday 11 February).
