1. Stomp

Show the kids that they don’t need fancy instruments to make music and make your way to Ambassador Theatre in London’s West End this half term. Stomp’s brand new show promises an hour and 40 minutes of explosive dance, comedy and ludicrous beats – performed by eight professional racket-makers with brooms, plastic bags, bin lids and even kitchen sinks. They’ve perfected their sound and show for thirteen years now, so prepared to be entertained.

Stomp is at London’s Ambassador Theatre at 3pm and 8pm throughout October 2017. Find out more.

2. Disney on Ice Presents Passport to Adventure

Make dreams come true without splashing out on a family trip to Disneyland Paris this half term – go to Birmingham Arena instead to watch The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Peter Pan and Frozen performed live by your favourite fairy tale characters, on ice skates. Everyone will be there, from Mickey and Minnie Mouse to Frozen’s Elsa, Anna and Olaf, so what about you?

Book tickets for Disney on Ice Presents Passport to Adventure.

3. Whales: Beneath the Surface


Have a whale of a time, quite literally, at London’s Natural History Museum this October half term. More than 100 whale, porpoise and dolphin specimens will be on display for the very first time – including the whopping great big skeleton of the northern bottlenose whale that swam up the River Thames in 2006.

Nosey around the exhibits, learn about the 50 million year evolution of whales and challenge the kids – catch prey in an interactive game, compare your hands to a whale flipper, see what lies in a Sperm Whale stomach, hear Humpback whales sing on the whale jukebox and so much more.

Whales: Beneath the Surface is at London Natural History Museum throughout October 2017.

4. Little Mix

Get down with the kids at a Little Mix concert this October half term. The X-Factor girl group are heading out on their ‘Glory Days’ tour in support of their latest album, and there’s still time to bag some of the hottest tickets in London, Manchester, Glasgow and Sheffield. After all, what could be more memorable than your first pop concert? Expect a school-disco on steroids, when you go along with the kids to bellow smash-hits, perhaps even ‘Shout Out to My Ex’, ‘Black Magic’ or ‘Wings’.

5. Extreme Robots Live Tour

Cheer on 100kg robots as they battle it out, inflicting damage and sending sparks flying with their clamps and flippers, saws and hammers. Extreme Robots Live tour is the Robot Wars television show you know and love, brought to life in a battle arena at Gloucester Leisure Centre. Fans get a chance to see the House Robots in action and the kids could even get their hands on the controllers – there’s a fleet of have-a-go robots lines up and waiting for your command, called the ‘Battle Ratz’. There’s only one way to find out who’ll end up on the podium and who will be flung on the scrap heap.

Extreme Robots Live Tour is at Gloucester Leisure Centre at 12pm and 4pm on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd October 2017.

6. Dinosaurs in the Wild

Spend 70 minutes in a laboratory, coming face to face with dinosaur eggs and baby Triceratops, the iconic T-Rex and the largest of them all, the Ankylosaurus. Dinosaurs in the Wild is a mind-boggling immersive experience at Event City in Manchester that could convince the kids they time-travelled to 67 million years ago when real life dinosaurs roamed the planet. Your family gets a tour of TimeBase67, where scientists are studying ‘living’ dinosaurs and carrying out an autopsy on a Pachycephalosaurus. It’s one of the coolest ways to spend this October half term.
