6 Spring Days Out to get you Smiling
The Beast from the East is long gone, and it finally feels like summer is around the corner! Which means it’s time to get outdoors with the kids, get some fresh air and spend time together as a family. The theme parks are all opening their gates again this March month, but there’s plenty of unique, fresh days out to keep the whole family entertained.
A failproof day out that will be high on your list this springtime is a trip to the cinema. Visit your local cinema with your youngsters and find a film that all parties will enjoy. The latest family film to hit UK cinemas is an adaptation of the classic tale by Beatrix Potter. ‘Peter Rabbit’ sees itself take a modern turn as the infamous rabbit, voiced by our very own James Corden, and his friends continue their feud with Mr McGregor. Parents can have a good giggle at this one too, and you’ll be charmed to revisit the beloved characters from your childhood.
