On the trail of family fun

Have your say

The weather might be rather unpredictable at the moment but there’s still plenty of great activities taking place in and around Leeds. Here’s a few of our handpicked suggestions.

Join our club: A new centre inspired by a love of books has unveiled an action-packed timetable to keep little ones busy. Parents and carers with under-fours can act out stories and sing nursery rhymes together at Bookworm Club, 10.30am to 11.30am on Wednesdays at the Rainbow Factory, Farsley. Theatre Club, for eight to 11-year-olds, is also on Wednesdays: 4.30pm to 5.30pm; while four to seven-year-olds can take to the stage on Sundays: 10am to 11am. Craft club is Thursdays: 4.30pm to 5.30pm. For prices see rainbowfactorykids.com.

Spoil them: With just a week to go until Father’s Day, Carluccio’s is offering a tempting trade. On June 21 only, “dodgy dad ties” can be exchanged for a beer when dining in their restaurant at Trinity Leeds. Foodies might also enjoy the eatery’s Father’s Day Hampers, available online only, for £30.

On the trail: Pupils at The Froebelian School, Horsforth, have created a colourful set of abstract sculptures, including a prehistoric animal and a “mad machine”, to be displayed in Horsforth Walk of Art on July 4 and 5. The free arts festival will feature music performances, shed galleries, open gardens and “art-bombed” wheelie bins.
