There’s lots going on this half term in Exeter.
Here are five exciting activities you and your children can get stuck into during the holidays.
Creative Kids at Bunyip Craft
Bunyip Craft on Fore Street is hosting two workshops over the half term period, on Tuesday 24 and Thursday 26 October. The first workshop will focus on simple jewellery making, and the second will be a cross stitch class. The classes are £5 per person, suitable for 6-16 year olds (smaller ones might be capable too!) and include refreshments and lots of lovely materials.

The Star Seekers at The Bike Shed Theatre
Theatre group The Wardrobe Ensemble is bringing its brand new production ‘The Star Seekers’ to The Bike Shed Theatre this half term.
“Inspired by our childhood wonder of the universe, we have created a unique theatre experience for children; a show that passes on our awe for the limitless majesty of galaxies, the solar system, shooting stars and planets to the next generation and also delves into one of the greatest unanswered questions of the universe: what do astronauts really have for dinner?”

Children will be encouraged to create a nocturnal creature mask in an Arts Award activity designed for families.

Ghostbusters at Guildhall Shopping Centre
There’ll be something strange in the neighbourhood around Exeter later this month – who you gonna call?
The iconic Ghostbuster car will be motoring its way into Guildhall Shopping Centre on Friday 27 October, complete with a giant Stay Puft marshmallow man, offering Ghostbuster fans the ultimate Halloween selfie opportunity.
