Who said learning had to be dull? Dubbed as the ‘workshop of the world’ Thinktank Birmingham redefines the concept of learning, offering entertainment while helping you to discover the world around you. This award winning science museum has over 200 hands-on displays on science and technology from the past, present and future. Visit between the 15th and 23rd February and get involved with lots of half term offerings. Whether you want to be amazed by big science demonstrations at ‘The Big Bang Show’ from 17th-21st February at 2.00pm and 3.00pm. Or join Captain Shadow in his quest for treasure on ‘A Thinktank Adventure with Pirates’, from 12.00pm throughout half term.

Are your kids Moshi Monsters Mad? Then Alton Towers is the place to be this 15th-23rd February when Moshi Monsters take over the park! Open daily from 10.00am-4.00pm they’ll be a variety of activities taking place for all those Moshi fans! The main event taking place is the Moshi Quest in which the Moshi Monsters need help to find their Moshling friend, following the clues and using their Moshi knowledge kids can win and unlock a very rare Moshling! There is of course also chance to meet six of the Moshi Monsters, so if you know someone who loves Furi, Katsuma, Diavlo, Zommer, Poppet or Luvli, this is an outing which they won’t want to miss!
