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.
