What’s on for children this weekend?

Backwell Festival, now in its third year is small but perfectly formed and great for introducing your children to music festivals.  There’s two stages celebrating local favourites such as The Ambling Band as well as world music so head over to Backwell for a great weekend of music and fun.  Intimate and friendly it features a pop-up Planetarium, favourite local storyteller Michael Loader, circus skills and lots more for children. In honour of Tim Peake, David Bowie, Stephen Hawking, Star Wars and anything else with a space link the theme is Intergalactic so don’t be afraid to dress up in your best alien or robot outfit.

Want to dodge the showers?  The Wells Cinema is showing the very popular Secret Life of Pets on this weekend as well as Angry Birds and Ice Age Collision Course.

Possibly one for the young at heart as well as children, head to the MShed to take a wander down memory lane for a celebration of children’s television, past and present.  The Story of Children’s Television is the story of all of our childhoods, and how television helped to shape the way we view the world around us. From puppetry to CGI and live shows to dramas and fantasy, the exhibition looks at how the magical programmes of our childhood have created memories and nostalgia in adults and children alike.  Additional entry fee applies to exhibition which runs until September.

Wrington Primary School has its yearly school fair on Saturday 2 July.  From 2pm the school has traditional fair activities like face painting and Lucky Lollies with new games such as the Human Fruit Machine.  Relax at the bar and barbecue while your children have fun.  Bring lots of change as all the proceeds go to the Wrington School PTA.
