There is lots going on in Royston and the surrounding villages to keep your youngsters busy all half term long.

Shepreth Wildlife Park is hosting all sorts of spooky Halloween fun from October 22 to 30, with creepy creatures crawling through the undergrowth in the Discovery Centre, or if you’re feeling creative, why not carve out your very own creepy pumpkin with scary witches.

For more go to sheprethwildlifepark.co.uk/event/halloween-week.

At IWM Duxford, families have the chance to step inside the iconic Avro Lancaster Bomber and discover how it played a major role in the Second World War.

Renowned for its role in the legendary Dambuster raids, the Lancaster is one of the most instantly recognisable bombers produced during the Second World War. Families can get hands-on with history, hear fascinating talks and explore the cramped interior crews worked in when completing their missions.

The Razzamatazz Robots Half-Term Holiday Club is on at the Royston Methodist Church on Tuesday to Thursday, October 24 to 26.
