Beat the boredom this half term.

It’s that end of the half term break when you start hearing those dreaded two words ‘I’m bored!’ more frequently than you can think of something else to keep the little ones sweet… something that’ll keep them occupied longer than 5 minutes and doesn’t cost the earth…

Let’s face it, school holidays are all about family time and at Market Place we have plenty of ways you can spend it with your nearest and dearest.

Did you know? The Light Cinema have a special ‘Family AM’ rate, where tickets are just £1.95 each for select film screenings on weekend mornings and during school holidays? Films on the list this weekend include Peter Rabbit, The Greatest Showman, Rampage and Duck Duck Goose, so you’re sure to find something to appeal to the whole family.

Fancy treating them to a bite to eat? There’s a great choice of family friendly restaurants down in The Vaults, including Nando’s – where meals on the Nandinos menu are just £5.95 or Gourmet Burger Kitchen where Junior meals are £6.95. But if you want a real bargain, then head to Prezzo, because kids eat for just £1, when you present the voucher from their website.

If they need to let off a little steam, then Amazonia is the perfect place! They can run, crawl, climb and swing through the jungle from £0-£4 each (depending on their age) and finish up with a ride on the Jungle Express – included in the price. Alternatively, you may fancy challenging them to a round of crazy golf in The Lost Valley? A round costs just £4.50 each or £15 for a family of 4.

Whatever you choose, you’re sure to have a happy end to the half term!
