About the activity

A day of experiment and discovery! Have fun during our drop-in workshops. Do you dare to face a real life Viking?

In collaboration with Les compagnons du cerf

We only use natural materials that are safe for the
littlest ones. We encourage kids to experiment and be messy; bringing an
extra set of clothes is a good idea.

There might be small changes to the programme (see below).
