Easter Holidays 2019 
Easter is early this year with the school holidays starting on the 8th April and ending with the Easter weekend. Hampshire Schools go back on Tuesday 22nd April

So, we are planning fun filled sessions with all things Easter themed from hunts, rabbits, eggs, and delicious goodies of all descriptions, with a healthy dose of curiosity thrown in!

Wednesdays remain our cookery days for all ages, whilst we will be exploring our Easter theme with a variety of arts and crafts on all other dates. Easter Teen Tuesdays will be cookery and textiles based.

and .. we have the lovely B Random running two day workshops for the creative writers amongst you!

Visit the Imagination Station with B Random and meet Ralph!

B is a local author who will be asking the children to bring one of her illustrations, Ralph, to life!

Get curious and answer some fabulous questions as you build your own story.

How does Ralph smell, how does it walk and communicate? Does Ralph follow the rules of gravity or science? If Ralph has special powers, what could it do? Does Ralph have a secret?
Enjoy your time with Ralph and come back again to create further adventures!
