Things to do in North Staffordshire this February half term


February half term is approaching and StaffsLive has put together a list of things to do.

The cold and wet winter weather can cause havoc when trying to plan exciting activities, but there’s plenty going on – whatever the weather.

Alton Towers, Pirate and Princesses Week

Pirates and princesses are taking over at Alton Towers Resort this half term.

The event runs from now until February 26 with lots of activities to keep the little ones busy.

The half term package includes bed and breakfast, one day access to the waterpark, sword-making and a treasure hunt, evening entertainment and more.
