The children's workshops will be run between 10 am and 2 pm, with a break for lunch. The cost of each session will be £30 per child. Each day will consist of two different activities throughout the morning and afternoon periods.
We are also running family workshops after Christmas. These can be booked for families of up to 5 participants; so all family members and friends can join the fun. The cost for a family is £50. If you need to book additional participants in your group, then it will be £10 for each additional person. The CFS team will be providing hot drinks with festive snacks for elevenses.
The family workshops will be running from 10 am to 12 noon.
We have moved to an on-line booking system, and you will receive an e-mail for each booking made to confirm the booking. The e-mail will also contain a link to your system calendar; should you wish to use it.
