Spooky glow in the dark slime workshop: Hosted by Leeds Play Network

Oct 30 11 am – 3.15 pm in 30-minute slots.

St Johns Centre, Merrion Street, LS2 8LQ Leeds

Hosted by Leeds Play Network


Come and enjoy some spooky, slimy fun at St Johns Centre this October half term.

Leeds Play Network will take you through the steps to making the perfect glow in the dark slime and better still, you’ll be able to add a variety of extra special Halloween themed bits and pieces to your slime- just like your very own witches potion!

We will have 6 sessions throughout the day so you can pick a time to suit you. Each workshop is a maximum of 30 minutes long. There are 15 places for children available per session and each child will be able to make one pot of glow in the dark slime to take home with them. Minimum age to take part in the workshop is 4 years old.

Booking in advance is essential to secure a place. Please see below how to book tickets via Eventbrite. Walk-ins may be available on the day for any unfilled spaces but due to the popularity of slime making this cannot be guaranteed. Children must be accompanied by an adult but only the children taking part in the workshop need to book a place. Adults and younger siblings (under 4 years old) do not need a ticket. Adults are welcome to join in or sit and wait nearby in the playspace.
