Half term heritage.

Looks like plenty of activities planned – for this coming February school half-term – at the Roman Baths, Fashion Museum and Victoria Art Gallery.

Councillor Paul Crossley, cabinet member for Community Services at Bath & North East Somerset Council, said: “We hope that local families will enjoy all of the fun and creative activities on offer at our museums.
