February Half term 2016

School holidays always bring out the best in Cornwall and even though the February half term is not the busiest, given the normal weather, there are still special events planned.

Here are a few details of some of the biggest:


The Eden Project

Between Saturday 13th and Sunday 21st February 2016 The Eden Project have a theme running throughout based on “Stick Man” the Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler character.

The theme is called Survival and features not only Stick Man and his family tree but also minibeasts with Crocodile Joe, Survival basecamp, bushcraft demonstrations and live storytelling.

The Lost Gardens of Heligan

During the February half term the Lost Gardens of Heligan are offering free workshops on how to attract wildlife to your garden including making a mini bug hotel, hanging bird treats, sedd bombs and more.

Found only 25 years ago after the chance discovery of a door in the undergrowth, The Lost Gardens themselves offer so much that a visit to the gardens is a must when staying in Cornwall.
