First Tingles of Spring

Come along to Almond Valley Heritage Centre this February and help us hunt for signs that spring is on its way.

First Tingles of Spring

About First Tingles of Spring

It might be chilly outside, but if you look carefully there are all sorts of signs that spring is on its way. After braving the spring spotter's trail, have fun in the warmth of the museum, planting seeds, building nests, and joining in other crafts to prepare for the year to come.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for First Tingles of Spring are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
