Well, this it.

The last weekend of the holidays as thousands of children return to school after a summer of fun.

No more mid-week movie nights, no more lie-ins and no more games in the park.

And that's just the parents!

But, there is still one more weekend to create some extra magical memories and there are plenty of events to help.

Have fun!
