Teeny Tiny Toddler Fest Returns!
18th – 29th January 2021
After a year’s hiatus, Teeny Tiny Toddler Fest returns to Camera Obscura & World of Illusions in January 2021, offering parents and carers a safe and secure environment for all those under-5s needing an outlet after a socially distant Christmas and New Year.
Toddler Fest will be running for 10 days, Monday to Friday over two weeks from 18th – 29th January 2021. From 10am – 4pm (last entry 3pm) visitors and their toddlers can experience the attraction with additional sensory and interactive experiences specially created to delight those aged under 5. And for toddlers the event is free! Ticket prices remain the same as a standard visit, with under 5s going free of charge.
Activities include making puppets for the Colour Shadow Wall, creating music with a Piano Floor and Light Harp. Look on while little ones are mesmerised by reflections in bendy mirrors and animal mirrors and the opportunity to take part in our rainy-day duck trail on the rooftop. Get lost in fibre optics and be enchanted with the Infinity Forest. Many other light and tactile exhibits will have youngsters amazed and enthralled.
There is lots to do for the adults too, with interactive exhibits, photo opportunities and seating located throughout the attraction. Parents are also welcome to bring their own snacks for their youngsters when visiting.
A visit to Teeny Tiny Toddler Fest will include all the five-star attraction has to offer, with over 100 interactive exhibits to enjoy, suitable for all ages.
Tickets are on sale now online. They make fantastic presents for the holidays. Pre-booking is recommended as numbers are limited in line with current government safety guidelines.
Under 5s Free
Senior (65+) £13.95
Child 5-15 years £12.15

The building also offers some of the most stunning views of the city from its 360⁰ Rooftop Terrace.
