FREE and low-cost events & activities

May half-term has arrived, along with some gorgeous sunshine! The town centre of Kingston is constantly buzzing with family-friendly events, whether it's seeing Rose's most recent play or taking part in low-cost or free activities, check below for things to do in Kingston this May half-term. 



Rainy days, fun days!

Weather forecast not looking too bright? When the rain is threatening to dampen your mood, there are lots of fun indoor activities to be found in Kingston.

Head to the Rotunda, where all you need for rainy-day fun can be found under one roof! Keep younger ones occupied at PICNIC, a play village where they can don a firepersons outfit, do their weekly shop (or be a cashier), put on a performance in the theatre, or cook and serve cakes, all while you sit back and relax in the café!

Young and old will enjoy taking an incredible journey from the safety of a cinema seat, popcorn in hand, at the Odeon. Or perhaps you fancy something more physical? With ramps and bumpers for a younger clientele, kids as young as four can flex their muscles and get competitive at Tenpin Bowling.

'Kids Eat Free/£1' 

Feeling peckish? Take a break from the adventure and let your kids grab something to eat for free! Check below to see which places in town are having a 'Kids Eat Free' offer.
