      Little Sparks

      Bring along your youngest scientists for W5’s Little Sparks toddler sessions. Visit our under 8s area, the town of Discovery, and take part in a 25 minute themed workshop as part of your visit.

      Children are born natural scientists so why not bring them to W5 to let them imagine, explore, play and have fun? The town of Discovery is a place where children can learn about themselves and the world around them. Get hands-on with its interactive exhibits, play animal sounds in the farmyard, paddle in a virtual rock pool at the beach or flick through digital storybooks in the castle.

      Little Sparks will be held one day each month in W5. (Term time only) Your special Little Sparks ticket allows you entry into W5 for two hours and sessions are aimed at children aged between two and four years.

      There will be three sessions held throughout the day and each session will include a 25 minute themed workshop at 10:30am, 11:15am and 2pm with one of W5’s education team. Places are limited and must be pre booked by completing the booking form and emailing: littlesparks@w5online.co.uk or calling 028 9046 7790 / 7793/ 7799 / 7712.

      As places are limited, you must contact us a minimum of 24hours in advance if you are unable to attend. This allows us to reallocate your place.


      *Season ticket holders only pay for the workshop*

      Why not take a break from all the play and relax in the W5 coffee shop? Our Little Sparks participants are entitled to a special offer – you can grab a coffee or any small hot drink and a scone or tray bake for only £3.00! Add a kid’s drink (Fruitshoot, Fruitshoot Hydro or water) and a yummy pancake or Pom-Bear crisps for an additional £1.50.

      When you arrive at the coffee shop simply show your Little Sparks sticker and your special offer will be applied. (Your sticker will be given to you when you arrive at the ticket desk).

      Into the Deep, Dark Woods

      Our workshops will take place at 10:30am, 11:15am and 2pm

      Take a stroll through the deep, dark woods with our storyteller to spot some curious creatures and find out what is for tea! This children’s classic will come to life in your interactive storytelling session and inspire them to make their own ‘take home’ creation.

      Winterland Express

      Our workshops will take place at 1.15pm, 2:30pm, 3.15pm and 4pm

      Once upon a time in W5, a magical train brought children from far and wide to hear tales of Christmas! Join us for our interactive storytelling experience with a ride through Winterland on W5’s miniature train to meet Santa. Children will receive a gift.

      *Please note that the Christmas workshop will be charged at £5 per child and must be pre-paid as children will receive a gift from Santa.
