The grownups are being looked after rather nicely by the #BathFestival this year, but did you know the festival is kicking off with a set of fun activities designed to meet the needs of the whole family? On Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th a festival hub will be occupying #QueenSquare for the entire weekend, with events and activities for children. We will be joining in the fun and have an art station in the square where you and your family can come and create a monster mask.
Not only this, #BRLSI will be sending you back into our #BeyondBeastly exhibition where you can design a monster, complete a quiz, tyrannize our twitter and make a fantastic flip book full of the most magical mythical creatures your mind could ever imagine. And if that weren't enough, we will be launching our new family newsletter written by none other than Professor Ichthyosaur, so get your grown-up to sign up while they are there!
