October half term fun at RHS Garden Bridgewater

This October half term, head to RHS Garden Bridgewater in Salford and delve into the world of deadliest plants and bugs with a week of fun family activities.

Explore the half term trail and discover more about the creepy-crawlies and super-smart plants that fight back. On Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 October, babies and toddlers can dive into an autumnal storytelling session, with crunchy leaves and sensory fun. On Monday 24 and Wednesday 26 October drop in and see Jo from the Cacti and Succulent Society for the chance to discover some amazing plants, from those with the sharpest of spines to the ones you wouldn’t want close to your skin…and from Saturday 22 to Wednesday 26 October you can have a go at some creepy crawly crafts.

Thursday 27 and Friday 28 October don't miss Du Iz Tak? a family-friendly theatre performance by Long Nose Puppets. It’s a tiny tale told by tiny critters... with BIG ideas.

Finish off the week and celebrate Halloween with a weekend of mushroom exploration! There is so much to learn about mushrooms – what they are, why they are and also how amazing they are! The Fungi Guy will be at the garden on Saturday 29 October for mushroom walks through Middlewood, showing you their amazing world, and on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 October Yan Tan Tethera return to RHS Bridgewater for exciting, interactive story walks all about the magic in the undergrowth.
