Anybody will tell you the nightmare of occupying kids during the half-term (running from Monday, February 18- Friday, February 22). However, there are a range of things to do this half-term in Salford. Ranging from shows to outdoor activities, there is something for everybody this half-term.

Elmer The Patchwork Elephant Show at The Lowry.
Based on the Classic Children’s book “Elmer the Patchwork Elephant”, this play brings to life the beloved characters at The Lowry from Tuesday, 19 February- Thursday, 21 February.
This play, which has been adapted from book to stage by Suzanne Maynard Miller, aims to show children of all ages the importance of being yourself. With songs by Allison Leyton-Brown, this show will send an important message to children in a fun and cheerful way.
Elmer The Patchwork Elephant Show tells the tale of an elephant that stands out – both with his patchwork-coloured skin and his sense of humour – but ultimately realizing that his friends have always valued his unique characteristics.”
A Relaxed Performance will be shown on the Wednesday, 20 February , where the usual performance will be toned down to make it more appropriate for those with Austism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or learning difficulties.
Tickets for the show are available here.
Tree Planting Day at Little Woolden Moss in Irlam
Join in with the local community and attend the Tree Planting Day at Woolden Moss on Tuesday, 18 February.
This event, which is being held from 10:30am- 3:00pm, is part of the Woodlands Trusts MOREwoods scheme. This is a scheme ran by the “UK’s largest woodlands conservation charity” that aim to protect the woodlands, to benefit people and wildlife.
This is the perfect outdoor event for your half-term in Salford, as there are 1500 trees to be planted which means you can have a busy day or come along to plant one.
Everyone is welcome to help plant the buffer zone of trees along the edge of the reserve, which will establish habitats for the wildlife in Salford.
