Keep The Kids Entertained This Half Term At Metquarter

Half term has rolled around again at record speed, which brings up the important conundrum of how to keep the kids entertained! Keep reading for our rundown of how to keep little ones happy and entertained over half term. 

AmazeLab Presents: Rockets Workshop! 

School holidays and AmazeLab go hand in hand like strawberries and cream – the team are back for another exciting workshop, this time it’s all about rockets! Your child will design and build a rocket, which will be tested to see who’s creation can fly the furthest! 

The workshop is aimed at 5-11 year olds and takes place on 1st June from 11am-12pm at GPO Liverpool. Booking is essential and tickets cost £10 per child, secure your tickets here.

While younger ones are in the workshop, why not take advantage of the hour and enjoy some food and drink from some of the fantastic independent kitchens at GPO? Check out the kitchens here.

AmazeLab Presents: Potions Workshop! 

Time for a bit of magic! In the second workshop from AmazeLab, children can come along and learn how to make potions and watch dry ice demonstrations! Guaranteed to be lots of fun and educational, this workshop is also aimed at 5-11 year olds and takes place on 1st June from 1pm – 2pm at GPO Liverpool. Booking is essential and tickets cost £10 per child, book your tickets here.

As it’ll be after midday on a Bank Holiday, this seems like the perfect excuse to enjoy a potion of your own whilst the kids are in the workshop, the GPO team are expert mixologists and will be more than happy to work their magic on a cocktail for you 🍸

Cinema Trip at Everyman

You can’t beat a giant tub of popcorn and a great film. One of the most eagerly anticipated films of the year arrives later this month – Top Gun: Maverick! After more than 30 years of service as one of the Navy’s top aviators, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell is still up to his old tricks. Training a detachment of graduates for a special assignment, Maverick must confront the ghosts of his past and his deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who choose to fly it.

The film is rated 12A so any children under 12 are welcome to see the film as long as they are accompanied by an adult.

Don’t forget that half term also falls on the long Bank Holiday weekend so be sure to book your tickets early to avoid disappointment.

Taste Liverpool. Drink Bordeaux.

Liverpool is coming alive with a brand new festival! Promising to be the most delicious weekend of the year, the ‘Taste Liverpool. Drink Bordeaux’ festival takes place from the 2nd-5th June in line with the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations. 

The streets surrounding Metquarter – Hope Street, Bold Street and Castle Street will come alive with immersive food and drink experiences, with local restaurateurs and producers showing off their world class food with tastings, demonstrations and classes. Not only that, some of Bordeaux’s top wine producers are descending on the city as part of the partnership with Vin de Bordeaux to showcase some of the region’s best wines – expect wine masterclasses and tastings! 

There’ll also be a producer’s market, bars, live music and much more. The majority of the festival is free to attend, however each restaurant and bar will have their own prices for food and drink items. We’d also recommend booking for any tastings and masterclasses as we’re expecting this to be a busy weekend!
