Planning family days out for the Easter holidays has just got easier with the launch of a new website called www.fabfamilydays.co.uk.
This is a unique new website providing parents and carers with a one-stop shop to plan outings during the school holidays. All the activities listed are free, or less than £20 for the whole family, so any locations that are more costly to access don’t make it onto the list! Leonora Corden, the creator of Fab Family Days says: “The events which are free for families to access tend not to have a large promotional budget, so they are not widely advertised.
This means there is a real opportunity to fill the gap with a website that brings together, in one place, these wonderful locations and their events.” Following many hours of research, Leonora has created a website that lists all the one-off special holiday events that the main London and local attractions put on for families during the holidays.
The website enables the user to search for indoor or outdoor events, and to find events suited to different age groups, and well as searching on specific dates. Corden adds: “We are lucky to have so many London museums that are free to enter. However, kids can be reluctant visitors to museums, and these special holiday events can often make all the difference in helping to get children excited and involved. So this website will save parents and carers hours of research working out what’s happening, where and when.”
To pick out some examples of holiday events listed on the site: locally in Surrey, there are Easter Egg hunts at Priory Farm in Nutfield, and craft activities as well as Easter Egg hunts at Denbies in Dorking. At London museums events have an Art, Science or History focus and of course there are more Easter Egg focussed activities – so there is something for everyone.
One regular user of the site has already reaped the benefits: “The Fab Family Days website saved me from the frustration of turning up at the Science Museum just after the holiday events that day had finished! The site has the full package for me to make planning days out in the holidays quick and effective.” Fiona Page, Regiate, Mum to 3 children 7, 10 and 13.
