Summer Fun for all the Family

19 Aug - 31 Aug 2019

Have we got a fun packed summer for you!

Now the sun has finally graced us, and the warmer temperatures are here (we can’t confirm how long for) its officially summer!

Every year through the school summer holidays we put on several events and activities to get you all excited about – this year is no different!

Starting from the middle of July, our popular Kids Club is inviting all Barnsley youngsters to get involved in some end of term gift creation. On Saturday 13th July come along to the centre. Children can make charm bracelets, a magnet or keyring and a pack of seeds for their teacher to plant and remember them by.

Back by popular demand

10th August plays host to visitors of a different kind – with lots of critters coming to the Alhambra!

Come and handle some weird and wonderful animals and you could even try some bush tucker style food if you’re feeling brave enough!

Fun for all the family!

Between Monday 19th and Saturday 31st August (10am – 4pm every day) you can visit the Jungle at the Alhambra, yes that’s right, become an intrepid explorer, meet George the Gorilla and handle reptiles!

It’s also a great one for adults too as there are lots of great prizes to be won. To enter and get your chance to spin the giant wheel of fortune – simply spend £10 in the centre and show your receipt!

Prizes up for grabs include sweeties, chocolates, Alhambra merchandise, retailer giveaways and entries into a free prize draw to win £350 worth of centre retailer gift cards!

On Friday 23rd, Saturday 31st, Saturday 24th and Friday 30th August there will be a live reptile show from 10am until 2pm and George the Gorilla visits at 10am, 11am, 12pm, 1.30pm, 2.30pm and 3.30pm.

Even when the kids are back to school the fun doesn’t stop!


On Saturday 14th September Professor William, Poopypants will be in the centre demonstrating a science class with a difference. With Lots of crazy experiments and awesome activities!

The best thing of all, all our children’s activity sessions are FREE!!!
