If you're not going sick of the snow, there are a host of things to do in Gloucestershire this weekend. Here at TiG's top 10 things to keep you and your family entertained.

  1. Get your kids out of the cold and into Gloucester Guildhall for a family cinema experience. The Winter Family Films event is on Saturday and the animated film for this weekend is Rise of the Guardians, showing at 3pm. Tickets cost £5.50, £4.50 for concessions and £3 for under 16s.
  2. There's a publicity day at Gloucestershire Airport with a holiday, travel and leisure weekend, to show people the range of services available at the airport in Staverton near Cheltenham. Weather permitting, there will be a range of airborne opportunities such as hot air balloon rides, helicopter flights and even wing-walking.
  3. The Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition, sponsored by Veolia Environnement, comes to Gloucester this week after its launch in London. Fans of great photography can see the best of 48,000 entries from 98 countries at the Nature in Art centre off the A38 at Twigworth near Gloucester.
  4. Those who fancy a bracing outdoor run can take part in the New Year's Resolution Family Fun, starting at the Tewkesbury School and Sports Centre at 10am on Saturday. It's free to enter.
  5. In Cirencester, it's the opening weekend of an exhibition by Brazilian artist Nancy Pickard.
