Events at the Dean Heritage Centre
9TH AND 10TH APRIL
Celebrating all things Spring, there will be a variety of activities on offer for the whole family to enjoy.
CREATE AND EXPLORE
Get creative in our craft hut with our spring themed arts and craft activities. Plus, test yourself with our quiz and see if you can spot the signs of Spring as you hunt down clues across the centre.
Test our local photographer, the founder of Forest Blood as he tries to capture your best moves. Pretend to run or hide like one of our many forest animals and discover what shot's he can take, it's all about timing!
