Magical Pirates and Fairies Half Term Quiz at Paradise Park

Paradise Park's Little Pirates and Fairies February Half Term Quiz is great fun for all the family.

Director Alison Hales comments "Children love the Little Pirates and Fairies Quiz, it adds a little bit of magical fun to Half Term. The quiz trail will run from 11th to 19th February and when you have completed the quiz claim your sweet treat. We've got chocolate gold coins and pink and white marshmallows and lollipops to reward little pirates and fairies"

Don't miss the chance to meet Long John Tredinnick and his loyal band of parrots, while you chart your course on your quest to find where the treasure is hidden.

And if the weather is foul... you can walk the rope bridge, climb the nets, fly down the slides, and the little ones can try their hand at the dancing balls in the toddler's zone. So make sure you take advantage of some brilliant JungleBarn indoor play.

Plus keep a sharp eye out for in fine weather you will see free flying macaws and - more importantly for young pirates and fairies - a parrot may well sit on your shoulder at the daily parrot feeding time with the colourful Rainbow Lorikeets. Every day you can see otter feeding, enjoy Carrot Time in the Fun Farm, and you could be chosen to help feed the penguins so don't forget your camera to capture the moment.

Apple grafting weekend at Cotehele

18th February, 2017 - 19th February, 2017

Saturday 18 February - Sunday 19 February, 11am-4pm

We'll show you how to graft your own apple tree that you'll be able to take away to plant in your garden back home. The tree varieties available on the day are specific to the Tamar Valley, most of which will never be commercially viable so this is a rare opportunity to have these uncommon varieties in your own garden, and you'll be helping to keep the gene pool alive and conserving the varieties for generations to come. Limit of two trees per workshop. There will be at least 20 different varieties to choose from including Hocking's Green, Cornish Mother and King Byerd. The apples are a range of cooking apples, eating apples delicious straight from the tree or cider apples. Rootstock types are M9 (Dwarf), MM106 (Medium), M25 (large and vigorous). You'll be able to take away a grafted tree for only a fiver.

Meet in the education room. No need to book, it's a rolling programme of workshops.

Assistance dogs are welcome.

Norman admission charges apply.
