What's On: Half term family fun

The weather may be unpredictable, but don’t fret – there’s an autumnal flurry of events to keep you occupied this half term.

Particular highlights include a quirky, funny exploration of the weather from the the brilliant Reckless Sleepers (It’s Hot It’s Not) and family film every day at 11am at the Barn Cinema, but there’s plenty more to explore on this page.

And sometimes, the best things in life are free! Our estate is home to miles of long and short walking trails – take a look here for inspiration. You can warm up afterwards with a hot drink or bite to eat at one of our family-friendly food and drink options.
