Mini beast adventure proves popular

There were bugs galore in the Vancouver Quarter on Saturday when families took part in our mini beast adventure.

Despite the wet weather, the third annual mini beast event proved a popular attraction for young adventurers, armed with magnifying glasses and enthusiasm, followed a special trail in the heart of King’s Lynn town centre.

Children also took part in two workshops, creating and decorate a bug hotel and masks and meeting some real life mini beasts, and there was also a pop-up photobooth for children.

There were goody bags for the children who were a mixture of West Norfolk residents and holidaymakers.

The adventure day was the first of the Vancouver Quarter’s Summer Holiday Clubs with the next three (martial arts taster day, fun circus workshop and a under the sea adventure workshop) already fully booked.

Booking opens on Friday August 2 for the final workshop, a Children’s Acting Masterclass which will be run by Scott Cripps, who played Buttons in a recent production of Cinderella at the Corn Exchange in King’s Lynn. Actor Chris Dilly will also be on hand to offer tips and guidance on giving your best performance. Parents will need to book tickets for their children to attend this workshop via our website. The other three workshops all have a waiting list that parents can register for should a place become available.

There will be plenty of other events in the Vancouver Quarter this year, including a revamp of the very popular Halloween event and Christmas Grotto.
