It can be tricky trying to keep children and young people entertained over the February half term. It’s dark, it’s cold and spring is still just out of reach.
But don’t worry, there are lots of exciting activities and events taking place this February. Fun and entertainment doesn’t have to involve spending lots of money or driving into the city centre. Read on for our top pick of family events in South Liverpool.
1. Try out a new sport at the Palm House
Get the whole family together for a free family fitness day at the Palm House this half term! Whatever your level of fitness, you’ll find something to suit every member of the family. You can try your hand at yoga, dancing, cycling, bowling, tennis, meditation and much more.
