Junior Roleplaying
Aimed at ages 8-13, roleplaying is a chance for kids to pretend to be fictional characters and play fight. You can join, even if you’ve never played before, and it’s possible to borrow swords and costumes. The teams have adult leaders, and there’s a chance for the rest of the adults to join in between 11:00 and 12:00. Remember to bring a drink as you can get thirsty.

The Last Coral Reefs 3D
The Last Coral Reefs 3D takes us on a global journey to explore the connection between our cities and the complex vibrant world of coral reefs under the sea. Changes in our cities affect the chemistry of the ocean that coral reefs rely on for survival. The film was shot in Palau, Vancouver Island, French Polynesia, Mexico and the Bahamas and produced by the creators of Wild Ocean: Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas.
