COMPTON Verney is preparing for its packed fun-filled programme this half term.

The venue has partnered up with the British Bee Keepers Association to bring the Ju-Bee-Lee Family Fun Days between Tuesday, May 31 and Wednesday, June 1.

There will be a live open-air bee demonstration featuring an interactive and sensory hive experience where children can learn about beekeeping and honey extraction and try making a straw beehive.

Volunteer expert Peter Haine will also demonstrate how youngsters can make a wildflower meadow in their garden.

On Wednesday between 10am and 11.30am, children will be able to talk to the BBC Ndevour Moth group about the amazing species found during their night stay at Compton Verney.

There will be a special picnic in the park for people to share fond memories of the 1977 Silver Jubilee – from £34.95, hampers packed full of traditional sandwiches, pork pie, cake, scones and much more for two people are available.

Morag Myerscough’s brand new art installation will be at the Old Town Meadow, where people can enjoy an interactive experience exploring the look and feel of a two-dimensional village.

By using the specially developed Go Colour! app, people can explore Morag’s work while children will be able to experiment with online drawing as well as learn about colour while going through the art gallery.

Budding designers can spend time in the art studio creating their unique pieces and developing their printing and pattern skills at the Print Makers camp on Tuesday.

The Re-Fashion Makers Camp on June 1 will allow children to create storyboards and illustrations – all while getting professional tips on the design process including upcycling and making a sensational new look with just a few accessories.
