To celebrate the opening of the Pirates, Pants and Wellyphants exhibition today, come and build a floating craft to help you escape from the sharks in the park! The friendly team from Brightwoods Forest School CIC will help you make a fantastic floating vessel out of natural materials, then join us for a fantastic flotilla in the fountains. Will the vessel float or will you be shark bait?
Join us and have a go at making your favourite cartoon character with our LEGO® team and then take part in our
LEGO® stop motion workshop.
Join us for an enjoyable afternoon concert with Furness Music Centre. Based in the Furness Peninsula of the Lake District, the Centre provides opportunities for amateur musicians of all ages and all abilities to join together in orchestras, choir and chamber groups to play and sing together. We are excited to welcome them as part of their Summer Tour.
Are you ready? A feast of activities for you based on our new interactive and colourful exhibition. This will delight children and keep you entertained. Come and see the work of Nick Sharratt, dress up as a pirate and find the Wellyphant.

Sophia has studied violin, piano and voice from the age of 5 and has gained many awards in the Ukraine. In 2017 the family came to Darlington and it is our pleasure to welcome them today
