What's On This Week (7th October)

This is an old post – see What’s On This Week

Here’s a selection of what’s on in and around York for families this week. Another slightly quieter week in the run-up to half term, Halloween (and dare we say Christmas). Don’t forget to check the rest of Little Vikings for more inspiration, from places to swim and see films to farm shops, soft play and stately homes with adventure playgrounds. We’ll be bringing you lots of ideas for things to do for half term, so watch this space.
