Explore the best of Manchester this half term (20th – 24th February) with a wide variety of options for the whole family to enjoy!
On the Ball
Located in the centre of the city, the National Football Museum is the perfect way to find out everything you need to know about the beautiful game. The free museum hosts a variety of collections and exhibitions, including the 1966 World Cup Exhibition. This exploration of the legacy of England’s World Cup-winning era runs until 23rd April and features stories from the people who were there playing and watching the games that made the event iconic.
Search the Seas
There is no need to travel far to explore the wonders of the waves. SEA LIFE Manchester offers an interactive aquarium experience and includes the newly opened Octopus Hideout exhibition, where visitors can say hello to Frankie, the giant Pacific octopus. There is also the opportunity to observe feeding times for a range of different species and get expert insights from the SeaLife team, combining the fun with the educational.
From Page to Stage
Is that a shark in the park that Timothy Pope can see through his telescope? Young audiences can join him as he goes on a journey to find out just that in a live performance at The Lowry. This stage production is a family musical that brings Nick Sharratt’s three ‘Shark in the Park’ books to life and follows our hero on some exciting adventures. The show runs on 20th and 21st February at 11am and 2pm.
Lost in Space
Eureka! The National Children’s Museum is inviting little ones on a Space Trek this half term from 11th-26th February with a collection of activities that explore distant galaxies and the science behind sci-fi. Fancy dress is encouraged, so now is the time to dig out that Yoda costume!
