February Half Term


Find February half term holiday events and activities in the Bradford district including child friendly shows and great things to do.

Go along to the National Media Museum this February half term and enjoy a week of events that explode with fiendish family fun with "Horrible Science".

Investigate eerie eyesight with lots of disgusting hands-on activities, shows and workshops. Watch sickly science demonstrations that are not for the faint-hearted; see the world in rainbow vision with spectacular specs; use terrible technology that helps us see microscopic monsters, and explore the sometimes shocking but always amazing eyeball.

Enjoy some fresh air and get closer to nature, by joining East Riddlesden Hall, this half term for a selection of bird themed trails, and visit the Discovery Room every Saturday and Sunday to enjoy free arts and crafts.
