Summer Festival

Join us for a summer of fun at our annual Summer Festival, 14 Dec - 25 Jan! With activities for children of all ages, there will be something new and exciting for your family to explore.

Bring children under 5 and explore our Jarjum Stories exhibition or dance and sing at a free First 5 Forever session.

Children 8-14 can engineer a robot racer using Lego, challenge themselves with a treasure hunt and join a game of comic book scrabble.

Teens can spark their imagination and meet new people with dedicated Dungeons and Dragons workshops, fabric printing, exploring new worlds in a VR (virtual reality) environment. Plus, teens can design their own spaces and objects, using creative and technology equipment at The Edge, including sewing machines and the laser cutter.
