Dippy the Diplodocus Returns

From 20th February, Dippy will be on show at the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum in Coventry. The 292-bone model of a diplodocus skeleton is huge – standing at 4.17 metres high and 26-metres long, and is a great day out for the family. Oh, and it’s free!

Birmingham Bake – Valentine’s Special

A fun day for friends, the Birmingham Bake takes inspiration from the Great British Bake Off, and lets you get creative and fun. Each month has a different theme and head baker – making them all unique! This month’s themed food is Geometric Jewel Cake (which looks delicious!).

Birmingham Running Festival

This year’s running festival takes place in Sutton Park on the 19th February 2023, where you can choose to participate in a 5k, 10k or Half Marathon. It’s a great way to kick off 2023 with some feel good exercise, and children can attend too!
