Is the calendar looking a little bare for activities to do this late May half-term?

There’s a host of activities taking place at the under-threat Museum of Lancashire.

The museum has been kept open until September despite the threat of closure and is providing a lifeline of low cost events for parents.

Here’s a breakdown of what’s on during the school holiday:

Wednesday 1 June

Jacqueline Harris’ tale of boggarts and imaginary creatures the King of the Cats is suitable for children aged 7 and over.

It’s £1.50 per child per session and runs at 11am, 1pm and 3pm.

Thursday 2 June

A chance to learn about camouflage in nature, with kids able to make their own animal masks.

Suitable for children aged 4 and over there are sessions at 11am, 12noon, 1.30pm and 2.30pm. Each session costs £1.50 per child.

Friday 3 June

The same animal mask sessions are running.

Saturday 4 June

Butterfly Education Awareness Day gives children the chance to learn about the creatures, including their life cycle and different types. Free to attend, from 10.30am to 4pm.

A planting day is also taking place, with adults and children invited to help plant bushes and plants and how these can help attract butterflies. There’s also a free picnic.

Plants for the butterfly planting come from Turbary House Nurseries in Longton. For the picnic the food is donated by RK Sweets, Derek A Smith’s Catering Services and Ralph Livesey Ltd Fresh Foods.
