    Lots on at half term

    If you're looking for something to do this October half term Creswell Crags is the place to be! There'll be something for everyone from children's crafts to an evening of stargazing and an exciting new special exhibition.

    We start on 24th October as our new temporary exhibition Hyena! opens to the public. This fascinating exhibition will look at the hyena occupation of Creswell Crags with themes including; family groups, the animals they hunted and the competition they faced from other Ice Age predators. With free admission and some rarely before seen artefacts on display this really is a must see.

    Then on the evening of 26th October we host our always popular Astronomy evening with expert Paul Money. We kick off at 7.30 pm for a night of stargazing in the beautiful surroundings of the Crags with light refreshments also being served. Tickets are £7. If you would like to book on to this give reception a call on 01909 720378.

    For the rest of the holiday we're celebrating Halloween with some great children's craft activities. On 28th October we're making bat boxes that can be put up to give a home to these elusive inhabitants nocturnal inhabitants of British gardens. There's no need to book for this drop-in session which runs from 11-3 pm. It's £4.50 to have a go and is suitable for ages 5 and upwards.

    On 30th and 31st October we're creating cave spider crafts from 11-3 pm each day. These make and take home sessions at just £2 per child are a great way to get creative and enjoy a creepy, crafty Halloween. So why not bring the family and enjoy a memorable half term at the Crags.
