If you’re in West Yorkshire and looking for somewhere a little different to take your kids over the summer then why not try the Rainbow Factory in Leeds?
Rainbow Factory, Leeds is two things:
1 – A fairytale land where children can explore story telling through imaginative play and the creative arts.
2 – A refreshing, more pleasant, day out than conventional soft play.
We have previously visited the Rainbow Factory – once, on a school trip with Seth – and it really is a magical place.
Suitable for children up to the age of 10, Rainbow Factory uses theatre, music and crafts in a hands on experience bringing stories to life and ignite a love of literacy and story telling in young minds.
