October Half-Term Events in Nottinghamshire

Half-Term in Nottinghamshire stretches across the last two weeks in October this year, with some schools having one week off and some having two.  With the current restrictions in place, this means that lots of parents (including me) will be looking for family-friendly, socially distanced, safe events to keep their children amused.

Luckily, there is plenty going on across the County, so whether you fancy a bit of pumpkin picking or getting your scare on at one of the Halloween events taking place at our favourite visitor attractions and outdoor spaces, we can help with your planning.

Please take a look at our week-by-week guide.  We'll be adding more events every day, so please keep checking back and follow us on Twitter for all the latest updates @things_to_do.
