Each day, we have 30 free places for children who are in receipt of free school meals. This email details what we are offering. If you have any questions then please let me know.

Overview of the programme:
Our programme is called Thrills and Grills and will run on Tuesday and Wednesday each week in August. A typical day will be split into two, with lunch in the middle:
· 2.5hrs learning cooking skills and then cooking amazing food with two super experienced chefs.
· Lunch (provided)
· 2.5hrs of summer camp style activities such as archery, geocaching, orienteering, ultimate Frisbee, team games.
The children will make full use of the facilities we have at the museum. This will include using our new wood-fired oven, open-fire cooking area and the open spaces available. Instructor to children ratio of 1:10.
