Free Family Fun For Octob’aar Holidays!
Published on 9 October 2015
As pirate fever descends on Dundee this month, with Peter Pan themed movie ‘Pan’ soaring onto our cinema screens, visitors to Wellgate can enjoy their very own slice of pirate action.
A host of free, fun activities have been lined up for children aged up to 12, giving them the chance to get creative during the first week of the October holidays. All events will take place on level 2 near BHS and New Look from 12 noon until 4pm.
Kicking off on Monday 12th, there’s Pirate Arts and Crafts – Make & Take, with the chance to decorate or create a treasure chest, make a Jolly Rodger pirate ship and have a go at the pirate portrait competition.
On Tuesday 13th, the ever-popular balloon modeller and face painter will return to the centre. Meanwhile, an arts and crafts event where kids can make their own treasure map will be the theme on Thursday 15th October. Chocolate ‘pieces of eight’ will be presented to children arriving in pirate fancy dress.
Finally, on Friday 16th, there’s a pirate Lego workshop, with Lego provided. Bound to be popular after a similar event in the Summer, this is a brilliant chance to construct your very own mini pirates!
On top of all of this, there’s a treasure hunt competition throughout the week, thanks to the generosity of Wellgate retailers.
Jon Walton, Centre Manager said “With the school holidays approaching, we’re inviting families into Wellgate to enjoy some creative fun. There’s plenty for kids of all ages to make and do and, with such a popular theme, we’re urging kids to ‘surrender’ and give into some pirate fun.”
