September/October school holiday programme: 'Under the Wire'

You've bailed out and been captured, but the challenge doesn't end there! Over and under the wire, dig for your life and don't look back! 

Our upcoming September/October OSCAR-endorsed school holiday programme is all about escape and evasion, inspired by our 'Captured' exhibition. Here's a snippet of what's in store:

  • Build an escape tunnel
  • Practice evasion skills
  • Make your own prison camp 'snakes and ladders' game
  • Construct anti-guard early warning devices

Alongside these special daily missions will be the regular holiday programme favourites, including 'Prison Guard' (hide and seek), supervised craft activities and indoor and outdoor games.
