Half-term fun at the fort

Have your say

GUY Fawkes and his gang of gunpowder plotters will be the theme of half-term activities at Fort Nelson in Fareham.

Activities for children aged three to 12 will include storytelling, dressing up, exploring the tunnels and Halloween-themed craft sessions.

General manager Nigel Hosier said: ‘Children love learning about Guy Fawkes and getting involved in the story of the events in 1605, which made fireworks and bonfire night so popular today.

‘Along with the Halloween craft activities, café and the whole of the site to explore it makes a great day out for the family at Fort Nelson over the half-term.’

The programme will run from Monday, October 26 to Friday, October 30 from 10.30am to 4pm. Visit royalarmouries.org for more information.
