We have the in-laws coming up from Wales for this so we might not get out much that week, but I’ve been having a hunt online to see what’s on this upcoming May Half Term and thought I’d compile a bit of a list. Here’s what I’ve found so far…
This is held on Friday 31st May and it’s a day to meet your local Uniformed Services and find out more about what they do – great fun for all ages, throughout Durham City Centre. They’ll be posting updates closer to the day so make sure you follow the event on Facebook.
