Wow, we're heading to the end of term at top speed. Here's a round-up of events this week but please head to our what's on calendar for more information and ideas. Also, look out for our what's on during the summer holidays features...
The weekend starts here...
The Black Cherry Fair in Chertsey on Saturday will include fun fair, live bands, BBQ, a procession, stalls, arena events and more. Or, you could head to Epsom for a FREE family D Day Remembrance event including WW2 re-enactors, displays of weapons and vehicles plus music and dancing from the war by Surrey Jive.
On Saturday and Sunday afternoons you can see an open air performance of The Jungle Book at Winkworth Arboretum - what a perfect setting!
Sunday is Supercar Day at Brooklands, featuring demonstrations on the Mercedes-Benz World track and Test Hill of exotic and exclusive modern and classic cars and a unique opportunity for visitors to enjoy supercars at close quarters. For those more into animals than cars, it is the Rare and Traditional Breeds Show at Weald and Downland Museum.
The Make Space is open at Watts Gallery on Sunday, giving families a chance to try a new craft such as printmaking to painting and sewing to sculpture, without having the mess at home! It's also open afternoon at Great Cockrow Railway.
The Summer of Fun has begun at Fishers Farm Park, where you can enjoy a tractor trailer ride, try the Sky Fall jump from a platform onto the giant pillow, cool off in the Splash Attack zone and of course see, meet and learn all about the animals.
The Spectacular Plants trail at RHS Wisley introduces mind-boggling specimens that grown in the garden and is aimed at 8-12 year olds. This is running throughout the summer.
The history walk at Claremont Landscape Garden invites you to take in the sights of a garden which was once the playground of royalty and learn more about it from the expert guide.
The rest of the week
Buggfit at Polesden Lacey on Monday gives new mums chance to get that post pregnancy body back in shape with their baby alongside, enjoying the fresh air.
Claremont Landscape Gardens is holding a fun-filled picnic for every bear that ever there was on Wednesday. The event will feature delightful stories and songs. Please take your own picnic. Especially for pre-school toddlers from 12 months old.
There is another chance for some post-pregnancy exercise in the fresh air on Thursday with Buggyfit at Polesden Lacey. Or, if you fancy something a little less energetic, head to the Teddy Bears' Picnic at Polesden Lacey for a pretend picnic, story time and songs. Children's lunch boxes are available to buy at the café if you want to complete the experience! This activity is specially designed for pre-school toddlers from 18 months old.
Join Charlie the Chimp for singing, stories and crafts for the under fives at Chertsey Museum on Friday. This session is called Museum Monkeys and should be booked in advance. Or for something a bit more messy, head to The Lightbox Museum for some painting for the under-fives.
Finally, the Very Hungry Caterpillar at Haslemere Museum is a fun-filled Early Years session where children can listen to a story and get hands-on with a craft activity.
We hope you have a lovely week.
