May half term at Lyveden

No. 31 Hunt for bugs

This May half term (27th - 31st May) join us for our Lyveden ALIVE! week.

Help us investigate Lyveden's wilder inhabitants with free trails, worksheets and activity sessions, every day this May half term between 11am and 4pm.

There are plenty of opportunities to get closer to nature with a range of free activities. Try your hand at pond-dipping and see what's lurking in the water of the moat. Or hunt for bugs and discover which creepy crawlies like to call the hedgerows at Lyveden their home.

Pond-dipping - 11am - 1pm
Bug hunting - 2pm - 4pm

Discover which creepy crawlies call Lyveden 'home'

Why not tick off some of your '50 things to do before you're 11¾'? Take a stroll around the grounds (barefoot to tick off no. 24) and see how many challenges you can complete. Head to the Family Den first for help completing your 50 things challenges.

Pick up a free 50 things booklet from our Visitor Centre.

This year we're launching the 'Lyveden Activity Passport'. Children can get a stamp for each activity they come along and do throughout the year. If they get six stamps they can claim a prize- a handcrafted medal.
