BUDDING photographers and little explorers are invited to capture the splendour of the National Memorial Arboretum this February half-term with a range of photography-related activities.
The programme of primarily free of charge activities will run from 10am to 3pm until Sunday 26 February – full details of daily activities can be found by following this link.
Families can explore the Arboretum’s beautiful landscape and capture some of the perfect shots in giant frames situated around the site which are perfect for capturing those group selfies. Younger visitors can dress up as an Arctic explorer with the venue’s exploration accessories and put themselves well and truly in the picture.
The Arboretum’s 2017 photography competition is not to be missed – and with moody skies and low-lying sun, February half-term will be the perfect time to take some pictures for the contest.
Until 6 March visitors can see the Changing Landscapes Exhibition – The National Memorial Arboretum Then and Now, showcasing images of the Arboretum in its early days, alongside recent photographs taken from the same spot.
Managing director Sarah Montgomery said: “The Arboretum is a wonderful place for children to explore and learn. The 150-acre, free-to-enter site gives the opportunity to learn about Remembrance in a fun and engaging way.
“We hope that children enjoy our half-term activities, which enable them to learn more about the memorials and wildlife onsite and put their creative talents to the test in these exciting photographic activities.”
