Spring has arrived in Bedminster and it feels so good!
The terraces are filling up, parks are alive and we’re looking forward to spending more time outside this April and getting to know Bedminster again after a long and dark winter.
Here’s our list of outdoor activities, music and creative crafts to fill your cup up this April.
Farmcraft @ Windmill Hill City Farm
Thursday 11 April 10.00am-12.00pm, 6-10yo, £10
The folks at Windmill Hill City Farm have taken cues from the popular kids’ computer game, Minecraft and developed Farmcraft, a real life outdoor adventure session. Kids will have to collect ore, stone, wood and gold around the farm and swap for tools and equipment. Items collected can then be used to build a fire, feed an animal, make a potion or carve a walking stick. A great day outside that is sure to get the imagination going!

Tuesday 9 April, 12.00pm-4.00pm
