Blast Off!

It’s definitely not for everyone, but the Royal Artillery Museum’s Rocket Week will have huge appeal for little tinkers who like loud explosions (volunteers will be firing a 25lb cannon at regular intervals, and carrying out propulsion demonstrations), and creating things that whizz and swerve into the sky. It’s a weapon-fest, and not every parent will feel comfortable with that, but if there’s nothing your kids would rather do than get their face painted camo-style and fire rockets at a model of a fort, Woolwich is the place to be this half term. Adults £5.30, kids £6.50 (includes all activities). More here
