GIVE THE SUMMER HOLIDAY'S A BIT OF BYTE

School is out, and the kids are on the loose, but there is plenty to keep them occupied - and a trip to The National Museum of Computing is a gem waiting to be discovered. Once again, the centre - on Bletchley Park - is presenting its six-week long Summer Bytes Festival to alleviate boredoms. Starting on Saturday (July 26) and operating daily through to September 2, participants will be able to see some of the machines that paved the way to our digital world and get creative with machines new and old. LEGO fans will be in for a treat too - with 10 'glorious brick-strewn days when youngsters of all ages can indulge on the joys of LEGO.' Elsewhere, they can hunt for golden eggs in the Bletchley Park ┬ávirtual maze, take their first steps in coding, and draw faces in the sand with Sketchbot, the sand table robot. Summer Bytes is open between 11am and 5pm, and the daily timetable of events can be viewed at www.tnmoc.org/bytes   JR-festival1
