Three Places To Go To Get Your Family Feeling Festive!

It’s finally Christmas week and it’s time to get into the swing of things! We’ve got a few suggestions on what you can do with your kids to get into the holiday mood or to keep the spirit going the days after!

One
Sci-sational Christmas at the Science Centre

Join the elves at Santa’s workshop as they get ready for Christmas! Experience blazing hydrogen combustion and freezing liquid nitrogen explosions demonstrated by the elves in a safe and up-close performance, and learn to make your own scented Christmas candle.

If you can find your way out of an exciting escape room, you might even get a glimpse into Santa’s workshop. Parents can enjoy the festivities too with wine, plants, and handmade crafts at the Christmas Fair.
