We’re going mad for mini-beasts this Easter!

We have four family friendly activities over the holidays, hosted up in The Attic on Level 3.  See below for more info.


Join in our Easter Mini-Beast Trail

Throughout the Easter holidays, collect a Trail Leaflet from Toy Barnhaus (Friday 29th March – Friday 12th April) and join in our mini-beast trail!

Meet some fantastic mini-beasts at our sessions!  Live animals you can learn about and meet** are:

  • Giant Millipede

*there is a small chance of salmonella should children lick their hands without cleaning them after handling the mini-beasts.  The minimum age is set since younger children are more likely to lick their fingers.

**unless any are shedding in which case they will not be present.
