Castle Quarter will be packed full of family fun

During the October half term holidays visitors to Castle Quarter are set for a treat, as the centre is going to be packed with lots of fun and free activities to entertain children. 

On Tuesday 22nd October the Kastle Kids team are back and this time they are bringing some friendly Mini Monsters with them! The Mini Monsters roadshow provides children the opportunity to meet, learn about and handle several different species of animals, from giant snails and millipedes to lizards, tarantulas and snakes. All the creatures are very friendly. The sessions are both educational and fun for children and their grown-ups alike. A Kastle Kids event wouldn’t be the same without storytelling and crafts too.  

On Thursday 24th October the team from Norwich Research Park are in the centre hosting a hands-on exploration of the food and health research that happens in Norwich, the event will be taking place in the Kastle Kids room on Level 1 from 12pm – 5pm. Then from 6pm, there is the chance to meet scientists from Norwich Research Park and work together with them to solve problems, and inspire the science of the future (booking required).

Also in the centre on Thursday 24th October local author Tom Hamling is debuting his new rhyming picture book from his Bella & Jack Adventure series. The new book ‘It’s Gold We Love Most’ follows siblings Bella and Jack as they play pirates, searching for buried treasure, fierce cannon battles and an encounter with a rather familiar looking pirate. Families will be able to join the adventure as they rhyme their way through the story with Tom in the Honesty Library on Level 2.  

Gemma Hyde, Marketing Manager at Castle Quarter, said “We are so excited about our line up for the October half-term holidays, it includes some really fun yet educational activities for the children to enjoy.”

Shoppers can also enjoy a trip to the new Superbowl UK that has not only has 14 bowling lanes, but a SEGA prize zone and Crazy Club soft play too. Retro Replay, the arcade, and gaming lounge is also now open in Castle Quarter providing yet another reason to visit the centre to entertain the kids during the school holidays.
