Solar Eclipse on #Daysoutwithkids
On March 20th there will be a total solar eclipse over the North Atlantic, in the UK we will experience a partial solar eclipse. A solar eclipse happens when the moon passes between the sun and earth and blocks the light of the sun.

Remember never view the sun with the naked eye or with an optical device such as binoculars or a telescope. Click here to find out how to safely watch an eclipse

We are very excited to hear that Thomas Land is going to be expanded! If you have already been you will know that little ones (and adults) love this part of Drayton Manor. Reports are suggesting that it will nearly be double the size.

If you have read and enjoyed the books then you will be counting down the day’s until the widely anticipated movie adaptation hits the big screen. You can already book tickets for the Valentine’s Day release!

Family Festivals

Family Festivals on #DaysoutwithkidsThere’s Camp Bestival, Lakefest, Shambala, Lamar Tree Festival, Shambala, Just So Festival and Beacons Festival just to name a few. I have always visited festivals since I was a teenager and think it is brilliant how they have adapted to welcome families with child sized porta loos, nappy changing & baby feeding areas plus lots of children-orientated activities.

EastEnders- Who Killed Lucy Beale?

EastEnders on #Daysoutwithkids
If you’re an EastEnders fan you will have your own theories of who killed Lucy and it’s rumoured that during a live episode in February the killer will be revealed. The suspects include Jay Brown, Ben Mitchell, Max Branning, Peter Beale, Lola Pearce, Lee Carter and Billy Mitchell.

Taylor Swift Touring

I LOVE Taylor Swift, so I had to include her on this list. If you were lucky enough to get tickets she is going to be playing in Hyde Park and the Phones 4u Arena in Manchester.

Shrek’s Far Far Away Adventure

Shrek on #Daysoutwithkids
If you are a fan of the animated movies then you will be excited that it was announced by Merlin in 2014 that a new Shrek attraction ‘Shrek’s Far, Far Away Adventure is to be built in London. There will be a Shrek walk-through adventure and a character courtyard where you can meet Shrek and his swamp friends. Rumoured to be opening summer 2015.

So there’s plenty to look forwards too!!!
