Half-Term in Bath

By Nick Allen

  • |

If you are a Bath local, or you’re visiting for a family getaway, there’s plenty to keep the little ones busy this half-term. From theatre and children’s yoga workshops to arts and crafts and making some new furry-friends at Bath City Farm, there needn’t be a dull moment.

Children’s Zumba and Yoga Workshops at Combe Grove

We’ve got an active October half-term planned at Combe Grove; choose from Children’s Yoga with Yogadoo for some story-based, positive relaxation followed by a peaceful craft session. Or for something more energetic, try the Children’s Zumba Workshop which is set to be a fun, dance class and accessible to all.

Take some time out for yourself too, and enjoy our new lunch table selection of salads, soups and delicious pies, book a treatment or use our spa facilities whilst the children have fun.

The Egg

At Bath’s award-winning theatre for children, The Egg, you’ll find a dance-theatre performance of ‘Tidy Up’, from 25th -27th October and the acrobatic Antarctic adventure, ‘Blown Away’ from 28th-29th October, this half-term. With a family-friendly café complete with play area, it’s the ideal antidote to a rainy afternoon.

Museums Week at Victoria Art Gallery

Its Museums Week this half-term and the Victoria Art Gallery have lots of free activities for everyone to join in. From their Explorer Trail and Colour Explosion, where you’ll find out about complementary colours, to creating mask and clay pots, there opportunities to get the creative juices flowing all week long.

Bath City Farm

Explore Bath City Farm’s 37 acres of farmland and follow the History or Nature Trail around the farm and head to their park, The Fort. You can meet the farm animals, have a bite to eat at their café or take part in one of their many events.

Don’t miss Bonfire Night at the farm, gather round the bonfire and watch the spectacular fireworks across the city on Saturday 4th November.

Head to Crockadoodledoo where everyone can create some original crockery they’re proud to bring out at tea time. You can even capture your child’s hand or footprint on ceramic or cast a clay imprint as a memory of your action-packed half-term!
