They will also be able to enjoy free face painting and take part in a craft session where they will make their very own rocket.

The next event will take place on Friday 24th February, from 12pm to 4pm they will explore the galaxy with the Mermaid Quay astronauts to learn about stars. They will also receive free face painting and take part in a craft session where they can make slime to take home.

The final event will take place on Saturday 25th February where from 12pm to 4pm there will be an Alien Invasion!
