Younger visitors to Portsmouth’s Blue Reef Aquarium will be able to join in some crafty, fishy fun over the weekend (October 8th-9th).
The Southsea attraction is holding an ‘Undersea Arts and Crafts’ workshop on both days at 11am and 3pm.

Children will be able to create their very own fishy-themed money bank as an added incentive to save up their pennies in preparation for Christmas.
The event, which will take place in the aquarium’s Colouring Corner and there will be a range of designs to choose from including sharks and clownfish.
“Our arts and crafts events are always popular with young families and we thought this would be the perfect time for children to start thinking about trying to save a few pennies for the festive holidays,” said Blue Reef Aquarium’s Hannah Butt.
“The team here have been trying out different fishy designs – with varying degrees of success – and we’re really looking forward to seeing how our visitors get on over the weekend,” she added.
From the hidden world of UK waters, Blue Reef, Portsmouth transports visitors to the spectacular ‘underwater gardens’ of the Mediterranean and the stunning beauty of tropical waters – home to everything from seahorses and puffer fish to living corals and tropical sharks.
At the aquarium’s heart is a giant tropical ocean tank where an underwater walkthrough tunnel offers incredibly close encounters with a huge range of exotic coral reef species.
More than 40 naturally-themed displays reveal the sheer variety of life in the deep from native sharks and rays to the cute otters and colourful reptiles and amphibians!
