Angus Alive Summer Activity Programme 2017

Angus Alive Summer Activity Programme 2017.

Helping your little animals to keep healthy, active and creative this holiday season, we have a huge variety of activities from holiday camps to crafts, outdoor activities and reading challenges to help entertain and inspire the minds of the little people in your lives.

Our sports activities include camps for athletics, a Scottish Football Association programme and a general holiday theme where sports include golf and an obstacle course – or why not get your little monkeys on the 2-day climbing wall course. Craft activities offer anything from 3D printing to an Animal Agents Lego play and a drawing class with a local artist. There’s even a family show at The Webster Memorial Theatre, ‘Goldilocks and The Three Bears’ – fun for all the family! Or why not put leaves on your family tree and book a session at Angus Archives. Whether your little fish wants to swim, your frog wants to leap in gymnastics, your hound wants to be a secret agent or your rhino wants to TRY rugby, with prices starting from £2.60 per activity.

Get your little ones signed up today!



Oor Wullie Bucket Trail

Oor Wullie’s Bucket Trail is a major public arts event that will see the streets of Dundee and beyond come to life with a spectacle of colour of 50 giant Oor Wullie sculptures in summer 2016. The project, a collaboration between The ARCHIE Foundation, DC Thomson and Wild in Art will capture the hearts and minds of the public and encourage us all to become ‘tourists in our own City’ and attract visitors from all over. The Oor Wullie sculptures will be beautifully decorated by local and national artists as well as household names from the worlds of film, music, art, animation and fashion. From small local companies to national corporations, a whole host of businesses and individuals will have the unique opportunity to sponsor a sculpture that will then be on show for 10 weeks before taking the sculptures to auction to help raise funds for The ARCHIE Foundation’s Tayside Appeal to create a twin theatre suite for the children’s hospital.  Read more about the trail at Oor Wullie Bucket Trail
