Workshops will offer children the chance to make a battery tealight holder from some of the natural items found dotted around the 150-acre site in Alrewas.

The sessions run from 10.30am to 3.30pm from 27th October to 4th November.

Visitors can also explore the interactive RAF experience, which offers children the chance to dress up and learn about the working environment of the operations room, as well preparing the billet room for inspection.

The arboretum also features a sensory play garden which is surrounded by memorials commemorating children who have lost their lives.

Sarah Oakden, head of marketing at the National Memorial Arboretum, said: “The arboretum offers the perfect day out for families this October half term, with a range of activities suitable for all ages.

“Nature lovers will enjoy exploring the diverse habitats within our grounds that a wide range of animals call home, interactive activities gives children an engaging way to learn more about remembrance and the meaning behind many of our memorials.”
