Family Fun

11th May 2024 - 9th Nov 2024
2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

There is always plenty for children to do in the House on weekends, such as the dressing-up box, decorating with chalk, and arts and crafts. But visit us every second Saturday of the month for a special family fun session guided by our volunteers and staff, with a new activity each time!

All events run from 2 to 3:30pm – booking is not required and entry is free, although donations are always appreciated.
