Knights in Armour –Mon 19 Jan & Wed 28 Jan, 10-11.30am

Watch Out for Waterbugs – Fri 23 Jan & Sat 31 Jan, 1.30-3pm

Little Devils – Thu 22 Jan & Thu 29 Jan, 10-11.30am
Growling, scowling, galloping imps, our little devils are full of personality and even the shy ones can get a tourist’s heart racing. We’ll do devilish things, play devilish games and find out why these funny fellows are having such a devil of a time.
