Welcome to our what’s on guide for February half-term in South Yorkshire, 2020. Please check with the attractions that they are open and their events are running before you leave home. This is our ultimate guide to the best events for kids, make sure you bookmark this page so that you can keep checking back. Another issue we often find at February half-term is some places aren’t even open. Hopefully, this post will keep you busy in one of the coldest school holidays of the year. We still love to get out and about in the winter – nothing some gloves, a hat, scarf and wellie boots can’t fix.
If you have an event or an attraction that you would like included please do get in touch. If you would like a larger, more detailed, event/attraction listing including photos please see this post. I also offer Facebook advertising to my large engaged audience.
