Half Term Activities

If you are looking for something to do in the school break Tameside Cultural Service are organising some half term activities for families to get involved in. 





A spooky culture camp and half term activities

You can get involved with each of these from home, as well as an amazing audio trail that you can do anytime at Stamford Park if you are looking to get out and about in your local greenspaces. The ‘Spellbound’ trail is a short 1km circular family trail along surfaced paths in the park and tracks in the woodland. All are suitable for small children and buggies, with just a few very shallow steps. You will be asked to follow the spell master’s instructions as he directs you on a family friendly trail around the park, gathering everything you need for your perfect Halloween potion.

After the success of Culture Camp from Home this Summer, for the October half term the cultural services team will be providing more activities for families to do with a spooky theme. Featuring wand making, potion bottle creating, witch mobile crafting and Frankenstein inspired drawing activities there is something for all the family to get involved in. Not only will you find our Halloween activities you will also see all the activities we have created for families this year.


Further to this we will also be hosting a super spooky zoom performance with performance poet ‘Dommy B’ of ‘Spark – The Goblin Wizard’. It is FREE to register.



To download the audio trail, the craft activities or register for Dommy B’s please visit: https://www.tameside.gov.uk/culturecrafts  


If you are wanting to get out and about, we are thrilled that Portland Basin Museum is now open! There will be a Halloween themed trial available when visiting. You need to book your FREE entry in advance via: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/o/portland-basin-museum-30868385663


The arts and engagement team are also supporting Ashton based magical travel emporium ‘Phantasmagoria’ with their half term spaceship trail around Ashton town centre with 12 spaceships to find. A little more information: Calling all eagle eyed super spotters! Phantasmagoria need your help to track down a fleet of spaceships that have crash landed in Ashton Town Centre! Can you find the spaceships, collect the symbols and then deliver them to Phantasmagoria Magical Travel Emporium on Stamford Street to help decode the message? The trail will launch on Friday October 23rd and will run until Wednesday November 18th and trail completers will be rewarded with a visit to the Magical Travel Emporium where they can claim their prize! Pick up a trail leaflet at Phantasmagoria, Ashton Library or at most crash sites to take part in this free, fun, Covid Safe family activity.

Tameside Coder Dojo

As part of the Council's Every Child a Coder commitment, we have been working hard with local volunteers to set up Tameside Coder Dojo. It’s a free code club, held once a month and is open to those aged 7 to 17 years old. It will have lots of different fun coding activities going on and plenty of mentors on hand to help.


We hope that some of the children at your school will be interested in this. They don’t have to have any experience at all. They just need to want to learn coding, and bring a laptop and their imagination!


Please help us promote this to parents.


The first CoderDojo will take place on Sunday 9th July 11am-3pm at Active Medlock, Sky High Adventure.


It is free to attend, however, placed are limited. Registration is required. Please read the event details in full before booking.

Under 12s require a parent to attend with them.


Coders (or their parents) can book a place now or find out more: www.tamesidecoderdojo.org.uk

Follow us on Twitter @TamesideDojo


We hope to see some of your curious coders there.


Any queries, please contact tamesidecoderdojo@gmail.com
