Our sessions last about 1 hour and 45 minutes. The morning sessions start at 10.00 am and the afternoon session starts at 12.30pm. We finish our sessions by 2.15 pm so that you have time to get back to school.

 Adults must stay with the group during the session.

We charge for sessions, current prices are detailed on the right hand side.
