Have you discovered our kid's activity sheets yet?

Every month, or so, we invite a local illustrator to create a beautiful colouring page and activity for you to colour in and solve.

You can find your copy on the plinth near the cash machine, in our Cafe Bar, or ask a member of staff.

Alternatively you can download and print your own copy, by clicking on the images below.
