This summer holiday, Tameside Culture have a jammed packed schedule; from nature themed “It’s a Wild World” events, including Theatre in the Park, visits to Portland Basin Museum and the Summer Reading Challenge. There is something for everyone.
 
Wild World

 

Come along to our It’s a Wild World events


From bugs and bees to wolves and giant slugs, we have loads of free nature themed events for you entertain your little ones.

Enjoy free family ‘Theatre in the Park’ every Wednesday in parks across Tameside Tameside (book to get the best view); get close with nature at our weekly outdoor events in parks and greenspaces or you can get crafty with virtual craft sessions led by Portland Basin Museum’s resident artist Jack.

This year’s Summer Reading Challenge is also nature focused with the theme Wild World Heroes. Children can take part by reading six library books and collecting stickers and rewards along the way with a medal and a certificate when they’ve finished. There are lots of free, fun activities to take part in too!
