This Saturday step into Winterfell and take aim where young Bran was taught archery by Jon Snow. Have a go at archery in the very place where the Bafta-winning TV show was filmed – in the courtyard aka 'Winterfell' at Castleward Estate. Booking essential. This experience is independently operated by Clearsky Adventure Centre, it is not sponsored, endorsed, or affiliated with HBO or anyone associated with Game of Thrones.


Join Navan Fort on Sunday, January 27, between 11am and 3pm for free guided mini-beast hunts. There are all sorts of amazing, tiny creatures residing in the grounds of the Navan Centre and Fort. Come along and see what you can find. This is a free drop-in event, with no booking required.


Rock ‘n' Roll Years and Dance Hall Days is back at the Ardhowen Theatre this Saturday evening. The all-star cast will once again take you on a whirlwind journey through the 50s and 60s, paying homage to the lives and music of The Everly Brothers, Johnny Cash, The Four Seasons, Ruby Murray, Bobby Darin and Elvis.


If you're gliding gracefully towards the second half of your life, maybe this isn't the show for you. But if you want reassurance that you're not the only one struggling with all the things life throws at you, step right up for Nuala McKeever's Letting Go Or Losing It at Ranfurly House Dungannon this Saturday.
