Easter Holiday Science Club 8-12th April 2019

Science & Nature at Tawstock Court

A brilliant & fun week for kids aged 6-13 who love making potions, exploring nature, art & crafts, getting a bit messy and learning loads. Our venue is the amazing Tawstock Court, just outside Barnstaple. Take a look below at the activities we’ve planned for each day and pick which day/days you fancy coming to. You can also book into the whole week to enjoy a package discount (more details below).

We’ve teamed up with Ranger Russ, Hannah’s Art Pod & Wild Things Forest School to bring you 5 amazing days.

What are the timings for these days?

Our days come with two options, you can either book for a Short Day which is just for the core Science and Nature activities (9.30-3.30) or book for a Full Day which includes these core activities and Play & Stay hours at either end of the day (8.45 – 5.15).
