School Holiday Activities

Whether it’s the half-term breaks or the full summer holiday, keeping children occupied during school holidays is essential.

Our popular Curry and Craft days run during the Summer Holidays and October Half Term and are an opportunity for children to try out Nepalese and Gurkha themed craft activities as well as taste some authentic Nepalese Curry. School holiday activities are free of charge but we do ask for an optional donation on the day.

This summer holidays we need intrepid explorers and problem solvers to come and take part in our new interactive LEGO experience.

Children will be able to build a LEGO model vehicle from scratch and then use that model to complete objectives on our interactive map of an earthquake disaster zone in Nepal!

This activity will prove to be fun for all the family and will give children a chance to play with LEGO, use problem solving and analytical skills to complete objectives, as well as learn about the role that Gurkhas play during disaster relief.

These activities will run in conjunction with our summer exhibition, Off the battlefield, on the scene; Gurkha and military support to the civil authorities.

All our staff are DBS checked.

Children must be accompanied by an adult during all activities.
