Lockdown meant last year's half-term was a bit of a damp squib for families across Burnley.
With things slowly starting to return to normal, the upcoming break promises action-packed fun for all the family with a whole host of adventures for children, and adults, to enjoy.
Here are a few of the activities taking place:
5. Wizard of Oz at Colne Muni
Join Dorothy, the scarecrow, the tin man and the cowardly lion on a magical adventure to find the Emerald City. This fun-packed pantomime twist on the original story is guaranteed to have you cheering Glinda the Good Fairy, booing the evil Wicked Witch of the West and rolling in the aisles with laughter. Wizard of Oz comes to Colne Muni on Sunday, February 20th. Show starts at 2pm. Ticket prices: adult £12.50, child/concession £10. Book online at www.themuni.co.uk
6. BFC In the Community activity camps
BFC in the Community's school holiday activities return this half-term for children aged 5 - 12, from Monday, February 14th, to Friday, February 18th. The camps are taking place at The Leisure Box, Nelson and Colne College and Worsthorne Primary, and are jam-packed full of climbing, football, cricket, dance and much more!

7. Burnley Leisure Swim Academy
If your child’s water confidence could do with a boost, Burnley Leisure Swim Academy offers crash course lessons suitable for kids aged 3 years and over, from complete beginners to improvers. Holiday crash courses are the perfect way for children to enjoy their time off and release energy while improving their swimming ability and are also an ideal way to introduce a non-swimmer (aged 3+), to the water before booking onto a 10 week block of lessons. Crash courses take place during every half term and summer holidays. A crash course consists of five half hour lessons from Monday to Friday.

A 'celebration of love, friendship and togetherness' will be taking place across three Pendle venues next week. Sessions, which will include crafts, games and fun activities, are running from 1pm until 3pm on the following days: Wednesday, February 16th, at CFWS Barnoldswick; Thursday, February 17th, at CFWS Brierfield; and Friday, February 18th, at CFWS Bradley.
