Our Planet, Your World - Overview of the week

Head to Harrogate District this February half term and you’ll find lots of free family friendly attractions and activities that are out of this world popping up across our town centres and public spaces across Boroughbridge, Harrogate, Knaresborough, Masham, Pateley Bridge and the city of Ripon.

Our Planet, Your World is a week-long programme of entertainment and family themed activity celebrating the planet we live on. Explore the towns and communities across the world that we are twinned with, the oceans that cover two thirds of our planet and the many ways we can look after our world.

Larger than life interactive installations and animal characters will amaze and feed the imagination. Whilst creative craft events and workshops for children will educate and entertain.
