Free things to do this half term in Kent

Well half term is here and (at the moment) the weather seems to have brightened up a bit!

In can get expensive this week, trying to keep the children entertained. So our post today is all about things you can do for free.

Visit the Star Wars Exhibition at the Beaney in Canterbury.

Come and see one man’s toy collection of all things Star Wars. It is a great array of toys and posters and there is also a fun dressing up and colouring area. There is a box for donations if you’d like to contribute towards future special exhibitions at the Beaney.

Whilst you’re at the exhibition, the rest of the Beaney is well worth a visit.

Head to Waterstones for their story time


The Waterstones  in Tunbridge Wells offer story time on a Friday morning. It could well be worth giving your local branch a call and seeing if they are running anything similar.

Head over to Hempstead Valley for lots of free events


From Monday 15th until Sunday 21st February there are some lovely things happening at this shopping centre:

Monday 15th and Tuesday 16th: Chinese New Year Treasure Hunts

Wednesday 17th – Friday 19th: All round entertainer: including stilt walking, balloon modelling, juggling and unicycling

Saturday 20th :Magician

Sunday 21st :Balloon modelling

Wrap up warm and head to one of these great parks or playgrounds


There really are some great play areas around the county. Cobtree Manor Park and Kearsney Abbey are our favourites at the moment!

If you know of any great free places to go or things to do, it would be lovely if you could add them to the Mumsnet Local site here.
