Square Pegs 1st Birthday Bash
To celebrate their 1st Birthday, Square Pegs invites you to party with them at their spiritual home, Constellations, on Sunday 4th September from 11am. As it’s their big day they’ve got a little something extra for mums and dads; we’re talking full bar, street food and global grooves from world-renowned DJs. The kids will be kept entertained with a whole host of creative workshops, from collaging to DJ-ing and body-grooving to storytelling; whatever their creative preference, the Pegs will provide a day to remember.

The Victoria Museum & Gallery are running family workshops throughout the summer alongside their popular film and craft Saturday sessions.

‘Making Places Special’ is the theme for the Summer Art Workshops at the Williamson Art Gallery & Museum in Birkenhead. Running on Tuesdays to Fridays the free drop in sessions are aimed at 8-15 year olds who can create their own artwork based on print, textiles, construction and painting….all with a professional artists on hand to give them a little more inspiration.

If you’ve exhausted all the museums, galleries, crafty sessions and fairgrounds and all else fails……..get your festival chic on and head to Fusion Festival, making its debut in Liverpool on September 3-4 at Otterspool Promenade. We dont think you’ll find many kids who will moan about having to dance around and sing along to headliners Jason Derulo, Olly Murs, Busted and Tinie Tempah. A perfect way to end a summer of fun.

We hope we’ve inspired you to get out on a fun family day in and around the city and make the most of the summer holidays, before its back to school with a bump!
