Creepy-crawlies - as well as popcorn and pancakes - will be among the attractions on offer to children this February half-term holiday.
Manor Walks in Cramlington is to host a week of free activities during the school break and one of them is a chance to encounter some of nature’s mini marvels.
On February 15, Steve’s Animal Ark will be visiting the shopping centre’s Centre Mall, outside Boots, bringing insects, grasshoppers, beetles and spiders as well as snakes and a lizard.
The Steve’s Amazing Minibeasts session will run from 10am until 4pm and there will be an opportunity for young ones, who feel brave enough, to handle the creatures.
Before that, the centre's half-term programme activities will get under way on February 10 with a variety of games hosted in the Centre Mall by Vue Cinema between 10am and 2pm.
The fun will include colouring-in and guessing the number of popcorn kernels in a pot.
