NATURE and science will combine with a festival of family fun in Northwich during half term.

Anderton Boat Lift is hosting an Amazed by Science event between Monday, May 26, and Friday, May 30.

Free activities include learning about bees, carrying out bubble experiments, discovering how and why canals were built, including the kinds of technology that were used over 200 years ago, the chance to take a tour up to the top of the boat lift and bug hunts throughout the day.
