Half-term events at the Harris Museum and Art Gallery have been announced.

Creating arty plant plots, steeping back in time and a bug hunt are all on the agenda.

The Harris has a number of free events to help parents keep their children entertained during the week off.

Hands on at the Harris on Tuesday 27 May is all about How Does Your Garden Grow? Kids can create an arty mini garden plant pot. It is free and runs from 1.30pm to 3.30pm for ages five to 12.

Wonderful Wednesday (28 May) allows kids to unleash their creative side from 1.30pm to 3.30pm. It’s free and for ages five to 12.

Community Heritage manager for the county council, Fiona McIntyre, leads a time explorer event on Thursday 29 May to help children find out about their family trees.

It’s free, ages five to 12 and runs from 10.30am to 12.30pm.

On Saturday 31 May there’s a bug hunt as children need to help the Harris stop creepy crawlies ruining the exhibits. It’s free for ages five to 12 and runs from 1.30pm to 3.30pm.

None of the events above need to be booked in advance, just turn up.

The Harris Museum and Art Gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday during the bank holiday week between 10am to 5pm. It is closed Bank Holiday Monday and Sunday 1 June.
