Calling all budding scientists! Stockeld Park is hosting a new Mad Science Week event this February half-term from Saturday 18 to Saturday 25 February.

Visitors can enjoy Magic Tricks and Spectacular Experiments including; a Sweet Making experiment, a spectacular Science Show with bubbles, smoke & things that fly, plus gooey Slime Making mayhem. Mad Science activities are free to all visitors with the purchase of a day pass which also includes a whole host of indoor and outdoor activities.

From Friday 17 February to Sunday 26 February, Stockeld Park and its thrilling adventure zones will be open to visitors wanting a full family day out. Wrap up warm and beat the winter blues with a breath of fresh air on the real ice-rink or enjoy a series of interactive playgrounds set in the beautiful Enchanted Forest. Don't forget to get lost inside the Giant Snow Flake shaped Yew Maze - where there are discoveries to be made at every twist and turn.

Sarah Murray, Marketing Manager of Stockeld Park comments:

“February half-term is always a great success. Families are keen to get outside and have some fun. This year we are introducing the fabulous Sublime Science team to our visitors. We are thrilled they could join us with their range of exciting experiments designed for children to take part in and enjoy. It will be a ‘Mad Week’ of learning and play.”

If the weather takes a turn, visitors can head inside to the indoor craft and play areas where the children can bounce about on a giant inflatable pillow and clamber over play equipment -while the adults can sit back, relax and enjoy the delights of the cafĂ©.
