We’re putting on a programme of family fun across Cheshire this half term.
The Anderton Boat Lift is hosting ‘Amazed by Science’, a new annual festival for all ages based around science, technology and engineering. Families will get chance to take part in a whole host of free activities including:
Over at the National Waterways Museum in Ellesmere Port join Captain Pete on the good ship Centaur. Meet our scurvy crew and bring your junior pirates on the themed canal boat trip. There will be on-board activities with prizes for the best dressed pirate. Pirate training classes start daily at 1pm and 2.30pm throughout the week. Tickets are £7 including refreshments on the boat. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
John Inch, general manager of the National Waterways Museum said: “Our themed trips are not just for juniors. Older crew members are urged to dress up as well.”
The wide range of activities during half term are in addition to some of the usual attractions giving the visitors the opportunity to interact with history, wildlife and nature first-hand.
