Little Sparks!


Bring along your youngest scientists for W5’s Little Sparks toddler sessions. Visit our under 8s area, the town of Discovery, and take part in a 25 minute themed workshop as part of your visit.

Children are born natural scientists so why not bring them to W5 to let them imagine, explore, play and have fun? The town of Discovery is a place where children can learn about themselves and the world around them. Get hands-on with its interactive exhibits, play animal sounds in the farmyard, paddle in a virtual rock pool at the beach or flick through digital storybooks in the castle.

Little Sparks will be held one morning each month in W5. (Term time only) Your special Little Sparks ticket allows you entry into W5 from 10am – 12noon (unless otherwise stated) and sessions are aimed at children aged between 18 months and 4 years.

There will be two sessions held in the morning and each session will be themed and will include a 25 minute workshop at 10:30am or 11:15am with one of W5’s education team. Places are limited and must be pre booked by calling 028 9046 7790 or 028 9046 7793.

  • Children 4 and under: £1 each
  • Adults: £5.50*
  • Additional (non-participating) children over 4: £4.50

*Season ticket holders only pay for the workshop

*Please note that the Christmas workshop will be charged at £5 per child as they will receive a small gift.
