In support of the Climate Coalition’s UK-wide ‘Speak Up Week’ from 30th June to 8th July, CAT will be helping the fight to tackle climate change by inviting the public to discover what a Zero Carbon Britain looks like and how it can be achieved.
Half-term highlights with an autumn theme
Throughout the October half term CAT will be running seasonally themed kids activities in the straw bale theatre ( 11am-3pm Monday to Friday). From celebrating the harvest and the coming winter to story telling, crazy inventing and our specially designed educational tours for children. For adults we will be running zero carbon Britain workshops and specialised tours of CAT. Check out the visit.cat.org.uk website for specific timings.

Autumn seems to be rapidly making way for winter here in Mid Wales. All the same, however, we’ve been enjoying the golden hues while they last – captured beautifully in this image by Tanya Stiles.
