Whizz Your Little Ones Back in Time This Summer with Southend shopping centre

16 Jul Whizz Your Little Ones Back in Time This Summer with Southend shopping centre

The Royals has planned an unforgettable summer adventure like never before!

Little Royalty Summer Fun Days will take your children through the ages –  every Wednesday during the school holidays – giving 3-9yr olds action packed sessions of fun, games, arts and crafts, free face painting and more. There will also be some surprise guests!

Join Ryan the Lion and the Little Royalty Events Team in fun, historical adventures from the Jurassic, through Ice-age, Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, Viking age to the Victorian Era.

From the very dawn of time to the cobbled streets of Old England, children will roam through all the ages to experience thrills and squeals that each era brings! Over six weeks they will revisit some significant eras in history all from the power of Ryan The Lion’s own time machine. Your kids will be taught about the mystery and wonders of time through fun and educational activities, including games, arts and crafts and food! The best part? Every single event is FREE!

Centre Manager Dawn Jeakings says “This will be an unmissable event full of exciting, hands-on activities that are fun and also educational! The six week itinerary involves a real variety of activities, I’m especially excited to see the HUGE ice-mountain planned as part of the ‘Ice-Age’ programme, our Little Royalty are going to be amazed! “

Starting on July 24th with The Jurassic period, activities will include fossil finding, egg exploring and dino digging. There will even be a fierce dinosaur food feast. But beware the dinosaur SLIME!

31st July bring the Ice Age. Expect a frozen frenzy of egg hatching, rock painting and ice-pop fun. There’ll be a feast that’s fit for caveboys and cavegirls, and lots of fun activities to help them ‘break the ice’

7th August zooms your little ones to Ancient Egypt where they will discover the Pyramids with arts and crafts to treasure – including jewel design and even a terrific Technicolor Dreamcoat Workshop! Plus, it’s time for them to put down the digital tablet and create their own ancient tablet with our hieroglyphics and scroll drawing!

14th August we will arrive in Ancient Greece where your chariot awaits! Ryan the lion will be taking to the Gods with a day that is of colossal proportions. Your little heroes will be able to get active in Olympic games and Greek dancing.

21st August is The Viking Age, with much Viking wisdom and training to be learned, your little warriors will have a splash of fun on deck! They’ll even have the opportunity to hatch their own dragons through crafts and learn how to tame them!

28th August we finally arrive at The Victorian Era where the littluns will get down to some creative chores with pavement painting, Victorian-style school lessons and games. They’ll then experience a high tea very fitting for a Royal affair!

The Royals is the perfect destination to make the most of ‘time’ during the summer!

So, if you’re looking to entertain your kids in the school holidays, it’s as easy as B-C to A-D at The Royals. We think your lucky little stars will love travelling through space and time with Ryan the Lion, every Wednesday for six weeks, between 11am – 3pm. But you can pop in at any event that works for you!

Don’t forget – it’s completely FREE to attend, open to children between 3 and 9 years old. We kindly ask for parents and guardians to stay during the event as children are not allowed to be unsupervised. Hours of safe fun!
