This summer holiday we will be running make-and-take sessions at The AGC Museum to help keep your little ones occupied! We have 5 different activities for the six week period so there is sure to be something for everyone.

Each activity will run at 10am-12pm and 2pm-4pm every Thursday during the summer break. Feel free to drop in!

For every session you come to you will receive one stamp on a stamp card: if you come to 3 or more sessions you will receive a little gift, which you will be able to collect after your third session.

The sessions and prices are detailed below:
