Speaking with a colleague last night over coffee in the pub (because drinking on a 'school night' when you have to face shrill children the next day? No.) we agreed that October school holidays seem more insane than any others.
We could only vaguely theorise that over Easter, more people are out and about in the first sunshine. Over summer it's more spread out as folks go on holiday, stay at home, enjoy the sunshine.... and in October? weeeellllll, the weather is a bit so-so, and everyone wants to find an activity which is fairly dry and indoors. All in pretty much the same fortnight. So the events and activities schedule is packed out!

Everyone I know this week who works in a museum, gallery, heritage venue... offering any form of children's activities.
Webcomic and occasional blog about the heritage sector.
