All things wildlife – from cute to creepy – will be the focus of the fun activities during Erewash Museum’s latest themed week of school holiday entertainment.

Free drop-in sessions will include the chance for children to make animal masks during the ever-popular craft activities from Monday 24 August to Thursday 27 August between 11am and 3pm.

The action-packed week will end with the return, by popular demand, of the Wildlife Workshops on Friday 28 August when youngsters get the chance to meet a variety of animals and learn more about their natural habitats. The workshops are suitable for children of all ages and cost £1.50 per child.

Councillor Mike Wallis, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Culture and Leisure, says:

“From making animal masks to meeting some cute and creepy creatures . . . children always go wild for our wildlife-themed events and we know this latest week in our holiday programme will be a sure-fire hit!”
