Half Term activities in Stevenage

23 May 2016

An African adventure and Ancient Egypt come to Stevenage this half term as Stevenage Borough Council puts on a range of cultural activities for young people to enjoy.

St Nicholas play centre is hosting an African themed week that features a range of arts, crafts and cooking activities, while the fun and games at our play centres in Bandley Hill and Pin Green include den building, clock making and weaving willow dens. Stevenage residents who are aged five to 14 are welcome at the play centres, which open from 9am till 12.30pm and from 1.30pm till 5pm on Tuesday 31 to Friday 3 June.

Stevenage Museum is turning Egyptian from Wednesday 1 June to Friday 3 June. You can write your name in hieroglyphics on Wednesday, use clay to make Egyptian inspired objects on Thursday and dress like an Egyptian on Friday. A colourings, quizzes and games drop-in session will also take place on Friday afternoon. Sessions take place between 11am and 12pm, and 2pm and 3pm at a cost of £2 per child. Everyone is free to attend drop-in session on Friday afternoon.

Councillor Richard Henry, Executive Member for Children and Young People, said: “Keeping young people entertained in Stevenage is easy this half term as we’ve got lots of weird and wonderful activities for them to take part in. If they want to go on an African adventure, learn more about Ancient Egypt or just have fun, our play centres and Museum have got something for all young people to enjoy.”
