Other activities include free face painting for children from local company Fabulous Faces, the opportunity to make birthday cards and badges, guest appearances from our very own mascots; the shark, turtle, penguin and Frankie the Frog, as well a number of stunning ocean themed balloon displays throughout the building courtesy of Amscan International Ltd.

There will also be a special offer running throughout the weekend of ‘one child goes free with one adult'. Vouchers are available in our commemorative supplement in the Hull Daily Mail on Friday 23rd or they can also be downloaded from The Deep's website.

Special birthday cupcakes will also be on offer in the Observatory café, complete with a hot or cold drink for just £1.50
