There is a full-week’s Mad Science Holiday Club from August 6 to 10, where children aged between four and 12 can spend the week making chocolate welded towers, creating a walking robot, eating edible slime and making things go bang.
There will also be a Mad Science show and free foyer stalls on August 10.
Young filmmakers can take part in the Lights, Camera, Action! Day on August 3 and for those wanting to show off their skills, there is a performance workshop followed by the ever-popular free talent show on August 3 at 2pm.
Those wanting to take part just need to call the box office for a slot.
Magic Russ will be at Artrix on August 17 to make free balloon models and put on a fun magic show at 2pm.
