This Easter, round up your mini-mes and head bayside because The Espy’s School Holiday Program is back bigger and better than ever before. 

Across four jam-packed dates in April (13th, 14th, 20th & 21st), the St Kilda favourite will play host to three school holiday sessions per day, each inclusive of three fun-filled and high energy activities.

It all starts on The Espy Balcony with craft classes from some of Melbourne’s best. Week one will see Melbourne-based designer and illustrator, Beci Orpin, transforming her colourful and geometric ways to host a paper-pizza making class. While ARTea Art School will host week two – a clay sculpture class inspired by native Australian animals. 

Up next, a magic show in The Espy kitchen. Hosted by Balloonatic Bruce, interactive games and tricks will be sure to captivate the kids (and probably the parents). 

You’d better make sure the kids pack their dancing shoes because it all concludes with a disco in the Gershwin room. The third and final activity for the session will see dance games, competitions and sing-alongs to all your favourite (kid-friendly) party tunes. 

Tickets are $45pp (additional children are $30) and include all activities, lunch and fairy floss for the kids, along with a cheeky drink for the parents.
