Moonlight Movies

Looking for a relaxed evening that the whole family will enjoy? The island’s Moonlight Movies are for you! The free outdoor event takes place on selected evenings on the Hesperus Lawns in the marina. Showing family-friendly movies and classic favourites under the stars, your kids can either sprawl out on bean bags and blankets for an unforgettable movie night with popcorn and refreshments in hand!


Art Classes:

For more mindful school holiday activities, the island offers school holiday art classes for children aged 6-14 years. Hosted by the island's resident artist, kids can get creative and explore their artistic side, plus take home one-of-a-kind mementos from their school holiday experience.
