Family Learning Festival 2014

This year's Family Learning Festival theme is "Learning from the Past".

Thousands of adults and children are expected to attend a series of Family Fun Events in this year’s Family Learning Festival which has the theme “Learning from the Past”.

The Festival runs from Monday 20 October to Sunday 2 November 2014. 

Bradford Council’s Family Learning team, Bradford Libraries and Museums & Galleries, the National Media Museum, Forsters Bistro, East Riddlesden Hall and Impressions Gallery are hoping to break the increased year-on-year attendance figures at the events which last year topped 25,000 visitors over the 2 weeks.

This year, families across the District will be able to take part in events which help us learn about and from our history.  This ranges from taking part in a Victorian classroom experience, decorating castles, handling fossils, exploring family life in World War 1, discovering extinct animals, playing spooky Cluedo and if that all wasn’t enough enjoying the massively popular Horrible Histories!

The Festival provides families in Bradford with many opportunities to learn new skills together whilst having fun and will hopefully encourage families to take part in more learning on a regular basis.

Super Saturday events on Saturday 25 October and 1 November, will be City Centre based at Forsters Bistro, City Library, Impressions Gallery and the National Media Museum and at Cliffe Castle Museum in Keighley.    Events will also be taking place throughout half term (week commencing 27 October) at Cliffe Castle, National Media Museum and in all local libraries.

Volunteers wearing Family Learning Festival t-shirts will be available to help families move from one venue to another to enjoy all the activities.

Further details can be found here.  The events list is at the bottom of the page.
