February – What’s on for Half Term

February – What’s on for Half Term – It is almost Half term already! I think this year is flying by already. We are not 100% sure which events to visit this year but there sure is quite a few. We have decided to stay in the North East this half term due to illness, mainly tonsillitis. So we will be taking full advantage of what our fabulous region has to offer.
