Beat the credit crunch and the British weather by enjoying kids’ free days out this summer! - Tuesday, 4 August 2009

A special event to mark the 40th anniversary of Neil Armstrong’s historic moon landing is just one of the free events at Fort Nelson this summer to keep the kids out of mischief.

With the Met Office finally admitting that it’s unlikely to be a “barbecue summer”, parents looking for free and stimulating events to entertain their children can be sure of a warm welcome at the Fort – come rain or shine!

Entrance to the Royal Armouries Museum is free and families can either eat in the Fort’s café or enjoy a picnic, complete with spectacular views.
The programme – which runs every Tuesday and Thursday during the summer break – includes new events such as The Eagle has Landed on Thursday, August 13. To mark the 40th anniversary year of Neil Armstrong’s historic moon landing, kids can meet an astronaut, fire water rockets and find out how Second World War missile artillery started the space race.

There’s also a varied programme of children’s favourites, including Commando Kids, Pirates Ahoy and Gladiator School. All the children’s events include optional craft events where kids can get busy with paper, card, glitter and glue to create unique toys to take home. A nominal charge of £2 applies to cover the cost of materials.

The remaining summer programme runs as follows:
