Discovery Club Programme at Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre

Have fun in the Onny Meadows exploring and letting off steam.

Discovery Club runs the last Saturday of every month 11.00 am to midday. Activities will be aimed at children aged 3 - 7 and their carers, although younger or older siblings are welcome too. Have fun in the Onny Meadows exploring and letting off steam. Every week there are different activities which encourage children to explore nature and the outdoors – you might also get crafty and creative. Events are buggy friendly and there is an indoor alternative in the event of bad weather, often a good idea to bring wellies.

£2.50 per child. No need to book, just turn up.
