There is no reason to be disappointed either if you are busy this weekend: music and theatre programmes await children and their parents every Saturday and Sunday until Christmas, and a heated arts and crafts playhouse will also welcome guests who are adventurous enough to try their hands at making Advent wreaths, candles, elf puppets or door ornaments every day of the week.
