Dadstastic, a day of free family fun organised by Leeds Dads, takes place on Father’s Day (Sunday 18 June 2017) from 11am – 3pm at Leeds City Museum, Millennium Square.
The day is for babies, toddlers and children up to 11 years old and offers a great opportunity for parents, carers and grandparents to interact with their children.
The day’s activities will include music, dance, science, storytelling, arts and crafts, and sport.
Children can learn to dance with Phoenix Dance, upcycle vinyl and turn old records into art, jump and shout at the BoomChikkaBoom baby rave, and meet their favourite fairy tale story characters. There’s fun outdoors with Pop Up Sport on Millennium Square, you can create crazy carnival headpieces, or make ‘Dad-Face’ biscuits and eat them!
