Whitsun Half Term Fun at The Bishop’s Palace
26th May 2018 – 3rd June 2018
The Bishop’s Palace will continue its hugely popular season of Holiday Family Activities this Whitsun Half Term with a week of family fun from 26th May-3rd June.
The focus for Half Term will be ‘A Bishop’s Life’ and a new family picture trail will be created around the Palace & Grounds, with clues for all ages to follow to discover different areas of the site.
On Monday 28th May, from 10:30am-3pm children can join in our Make-it Monday craft session in the Undercroft, where they can discover the answers to questions such as ‘What does a Bishop do? What do they wear? Where do they live?’ and they’ll get the chance to design a cope, make an origami mitre or work on a Bishop puppet!
If they decide to head upstairs, the Palace dressing up box will give them a chance to try dressing up as a Bishop themselves.
On Friday 1st June, Nature Ninjas family gardening sessions will take place from 11am-3pm, when little ones can take the opportunity to get hands on with the Palace gardening team and discover what jobs need doing at this time of year outside – there are also mini-beasts to hunt and a perfect pool for pond-dipping.
There will also be a range of children’s garden games adjacent to the café so that any accompanying grown-ups can have a coffee break in peace whilst the children try their hands at Giant Jenga, Snakes & Ladders, Connect Four and even Mini-Croquet!
All events are included with standard admission. Children under 5 are FREE.
