Mini dragons

Barry the dragon at Kirkstall Abbey.

10:00am - 11:00am every Tuesday between 29 July 2014 and 26 August 2014.

Fun for the under 5s and their carers.


Our weekly under 5s session has a dragon theme for the summer holidays.

Bring along your mini dragon for fun crafts and activities in the Abbey.

Please be prepared that we do get messy and we like to go outside and explore in nice weather.
