A beautiful week weather-wise seems to be a precursor to a changeable weekend, although Saturday looks to be the day to get out and about. With that in mind, here are a few choices for the weekend:
Saturday 25th April
Dewsbury Minister Art & Culture Festival (free) http://www.dewsburyminsterfest.uk/
While not specifically targeted at toddlers, this seems like an ideal event for those with musical tastes. There are numerous demonstrations of various instruments throughout the day, as well as story and rhyme time at 10.30 and 12.15 and arts and crafts as well. The Church is next door to the Sports Centre and while parking is ample, there is a small charge in the main council car park nearby.
Bankfield Museum (free) http://museums.calderdale.gov.uk/whatson/events/saint-georges-day-fun
A Hat Tip to Yorkshire Tots on this one as I have never even heard of the museum, but they are having a St Georges Fun Day. The highlight appears to be the arrival of the horse at 2.30pm, but there are interactive stories at 11am, 12.30pm and 2pm. Having never been, I am not sure as to the age appropriateness of the museum for toddlers, but it is certainly somewhere which I hope to visit at some point when in that part of the world.
Saturday 25th April & Sunday 26th April
Brighouse Food and Craft Market (free) http://brighousemarket.co.uk/
We visited the Victorian Christmas Market in November 2014 and it was a busy event with a number of different street acts, a mini funfair and the town centre pedestrianised with specialised market stalls throughout the town centre. It was a wonderful sensory experience seeing different things and smelling different foods being cooked and I hope that that this event is of a similar nature. Parking is somewhat difficult in Brighouse so a good deal of patience is needed!!
