We kick started our new term of activities for parent carers and their families with our very first family walk last week; bee hunting at The Lowry and Media City. Inspired by the amazing decorated bees that have popped up all over the City we walked round the Lowry Outlet Mall and Media City and really enjoyed having photos taken and learning lots of buzzing bee facts!
Bee hunting is tiring work and we were very glad to stop for a picnic lunch in the Blue Peter Garden and a spot of bee colouring in before walking back to the Lowry Theatre to see 'What The Ladybird Heard' in the Quays Theatre. It was a really enjoyable performance that captured the children's imaginations brilliantly and was the perfect way to end a busy, buzzy day. We are incredibly grateful for to The Lowry Theatre for facilitating this trip for our families; a relaxed performance was perfect for many of the children in our group. Parents were over the moon to have an amazing new experience for their children, something that many would not be able to manage without The Lowry's generosity.
Keep an eye out in our forthcoming calendar of events for more walks and fun activities. One little boy who joined us said "I loved it, I loved it, I loved it" when asked whether he had enjoyed his day. Feedback from parent carers was really positive and we look forward to providing more organised activities in the near future!!
