5 Fun Things To Do in February Half Term

February half term is a tricky one. Most people don’t go on holiday and the weather isn’t great but everyone still needs to get out of the house. However, we live in a beautiful part of the world, with some brilliant museums, libraries, cinemas, parks and events. SHASBAH’s weekly groups are term-time only, so here is our pick of things to do in South Yorkshire (and slightly beyond) this half term holiday.

1. Browse the Makers Market (Saturday 10th February)

Discover the creations of some of our best local artists and craftspeople at the Spring Makers Market. Get inspired, do some shopping and support independent businesses. The Market will be in the Showroom Workstation from 10am-4pm. Tickets are £2 or free for U16s. Pre-book here.

2. Visit the Young Carers and Pete McKee Exhibition

Sheffield Young Carers have collaborated with Pete McKee on a very special art exhibition at Weston Park Museum. See what young carers themselves have to say about their experiences. Entry is free and the museum is open every day except Monday. Have a stroll around the park and a drink in the cafe while you’re there.

3. Take the Sensory Trail at Wentworth Castle Gardens

Wentworth Castle Gardens is a lovely, peaceful place to spend an afternoon. Get some fresh air and engage your senses to connect with nature on their sensory trail.

4. Visit the Rhubarb Festival

A little further afield in Wakefield, the annual Rhubarb Festival is happening from 16th-18th February. For a unique and fun day out, make the trip to the Rhubarb Market, go to a workshop, watch a cookery demonstration or sample a treat from the Rhubarb Trail.

5. Travel the Monsal Trail

For an accessible walk in the Peak District, head to the Monsal Trail. Right in the heart of the National Park, the trail is flat and wheelchair-friendly with wonderful views along the route. There are also a couple of cafes for some welcome refreshment.
