Manchester Museum Family Day

Saturday 28 March 2020 Manchester Museum Family Days

For our first Family Day of the year, we're excited to be heading to Manchester for a hands-on, interactive experience at the enchanting Manchester Museum. There'll be clay crafting, a chance to get up close to ancient objects and even a live animal show and tell

Our Family Days are held across the UK, to give your family a relaxed and supportive experience with others who understand. So if you or your child (0-18) is living with a brain tumour, come and join us as we come face-to-face with fascinating creatures throughout the ages.

What’s more, we understand that time together is priceless. So our Family Days are price-less. There’s no cost for attending, and lunch, snacks and drinks are all provided.

Book your space today

Family Days strengthen our family’s bond. When we share activities together it forms strong, emotional ties in our family helping us adapt to the health struggles we’ve faced in the past and in our daily life.
