An action packed, fun-filled experience with prizes and treats throughout. One lucky Craftminer per session will also win the Craft Mine Creative Genius Award! Awarded at the end of each event session.

Each child will receive a free Craft Mine bag to fill with the arts, crafts and treats they create and collect on their adventure. The event also features a gem stone treasure hunt for all the family, linking to Liverpool museums, and ticket holders will receive a money off voucher for cafes and restaurants around the city. Activities cater to different age levels from 5-14, with chill out zones and healthy refreshment kiosks mapped within the “mine”.

W.I.L.D In & Out Camp Creative Director Lynne Winstanley said: “The launch of the new Craft mine at St Georges Hall has been a great success so far, so much so that one family have visited us twice! The main attractions of the event so far have been Mine Craft Steeplechase and Giant Archery. We personally adore the huge mural wall that the children of Liverpool have created themselves and everyone also loves Disney’s Elsa and Anna attraction, even the parents. Our tickets are selling quicker than our children’s picnic baskets in our café so get yourself down here and enjoy the fun.”

A fun and educational experience which encourages communication and team skills, The Craft Mine is a brilliant day out for the whole family.
