Our much-loved family fun event Thumbs Up It's Thursday is back and even better this summer holiday with a jam-packed programme, perfect for keeping little ones entertained over the long school break!

On 28 July and 4, 11, 18 & 25 August, enjoy a day of free or low-cost family activities at over 20 local businesses, offering everything from baking and sushi-making to arts & crafts workshops.

Don't forget to head over to Memorial Gardens where we'll be putting on free sessions including circus skills, face painting and storytelling under the stretch tent next to our pop-up sandpit. 

If the kids get peckish, some of the town centre’s top eateries will be offering ‘Kids Eat Free/for £1’ deals to take advantage of, so you can grab a delicious lunch before heading back out for more fun!
