There are lot's of events taking place during half term - at Conkers, in The National Forest, Flip and Dippy the clowns will be on hand entertaining the children, at Twinlakes near Melton Mowbray there are special events for princesses or superheroes and at DeMontfort Hall in Leicester there's a Comedy Club 4 Kids.

For a free day out and the chance to let off steam, why not visit the ruins in Bradgate Park, the birthplace and childhood home of Lady Jane Grey, Queen of England for nine days in 1553.
