Wild Woods

Wed, 22/04/2015 - 11:00am - 3:00pm
Location: 
An Creagan
Wild Woods

Playing in the 'Wild Woods' at An Creagán. Water, mud, fire, sticks, marshmallows and more mud. Bring a picnic and wet weather gear (wellies, waterproof everything, a change of clothes), we won't give up just because it happens to rain!

"I’ve booked you in for the 22nd April and the numbers are totally flexible. With the Wild Woods there is no guided programme, but I usually walk the group down and welcome them as we light the campfire and then it’s off to play. We normally put out pond nets, buckets and spades, den building materials, paints and maybe some other junk art stuff and the children are free to move around as they please and engage in whatever activities appeal to them – parents can stand back and supervise."

Living History

Wed, 18/03/2015 - 11:00am - 2:30pm
Location: 
An Creagan
Bronze Age Settlement

This event is full, but we are happy to try and organise another.

An Creagán is offering a NEW Living History programme. The visit focuses on daily life in the Bronze Age and uses an experimental archaeology type approach to allow children to have a go at some of the day to day activities, from building a wattle and daub house to cooking a meal. It takes place in the newly created Bronze Age Settlement reconstruction on site at An Creagán. An Educator will be with your group throughout the visit.

Be prepared for the weather as it is mostly outdoors and we usually carry on regardless of rain/snow! Families are welcome to bring a packed lunch or use the coffee shop or restaurant in the centre.
