What to do this half term in Manchester?

It's almost half term and if you're anything like me you'll be looking for some fun activities to keep the children entertained these school holiday's so I thought i'd do a round up of some great activities and days out around Manchester this half term! Some free, some have great offers on and other's are more of a well deserved treat...

Half Price Bowling for kids at Dog Bowl

This half term kids can enjoy a game of bowling for half price at Dog Bowl on Manchester’s Whitworth Street West, meaning there’s no need to let boredom set in over the holidays.

From Monday 28th October until Friday 1st November kids will be able to bowl for just £2 per person from 12pm-6pm as part of the half term offering.  

Why not make a day of it and have lunch too? Kids are catered for in the restaurant with a specially devised three course children’s menu available for just £6.50 which includes a soft drink. With options including pork tacos, tortilla pizza and spanish inspired churros, the Tex-Mex menu is sure to keep the niƱos happy at mealtimes!

Big Imaginations Family Theatre Festival

From the 18 October to 3 November 2013 Children's Theatre is coming to the North West.

 The Big Imaginations Festival is part of the nationwide Family Arts Festival and celebrates brilliant children's theatre.  From the classic showdown between the Hare and the Tortoise and a re-imagining of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night to the world's first projection-mapped pop up book and the spine-tingling terror of Spooky Tales, the festival showcases the best in children's theatre and fires the imaginations of young ones - from toddling two-year-olds to sophisticated pre-teens. Take a look at what we thought of the launch (Where I met Mr Bloom!) and check out the full selection of shows and venues on the website...

The Big Draw at IWMN

The Imperial War museum North at Salford Quays is one of our favourite local museums, as well as being free the exhibitions are always really interactive and accompanied by activities for the whole family to get involved in. 

Families are being invited to take part in the world’s largest drawing festival this October at IWM North, 
visitors can take part in The Big Draw 2013 by creating their own works of art inspired by IWM North’s 
collections. Meet an artist whose work is on display, come face to face with a walkabout artist character, 
or enjoy free storytelling sessions, performances and workshops. Find out more on their website... 


So what will you be doing this half term? I'd love to know your plans...
