Events & Workshops

Lab in a Library

We provide workshops in a Library environment where the whole family can join in.  These are on a variety of topics and do have age restrictions.  Some of these workshops are suitable for all ages, ie “A trip to Space and Back” and some “Forensics and Crime solving” for example, is suitable for those aged 8 and above.  The prices vary for a two hour workshop but start at £3 per child and these workshops take part in Libraries all over Suffolk and Norfolk.

Do come back to this space where we list the next Library Workshops and where they are being held and the topics available.  All bookings are taken directly by the individual libraries.  Please note all children under the age of 8 must have a parent/carer staying with them during the activity.

Our next Holiday Clubs and workshops where you can leave the children will be happening in the October half term so please watch our Facebook Page for details of upcoming events.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:

  •  We suggest you book the workshop in advance to avoid disappointment.  If you are unable to book then do come along and see if we can accommodate you!
  •  All of the workshops will be listed here with dates, times and locations, throughout Suffolk and Norfolk.
  • We charge £8 per child aged  6 – 15 years old for a two hour workshop.  Any child under 9 years old we ask that the parent stays with their child.  However, if your child is 9 years and above then you may leave your child for the two hours as long as you leave a mobile phone number so we can contact you if there is a problem with your child.
  •  We only have the facility to take your payment in cash on the day at the present time!

Coming Soon:   We will also soon be offering Holiday Day Camps.  Watch this space for details.

Please return for more information to where the Roadshow is going to be held and so you can find one near you.
