MOTAT (Museum of Transport and Technology) has announced that after a tough start to the year, they will be ‘pulling out all the stops’ to make this year’s International Day of Happiness, one that will be remembered.

The Big Day of Happy will be hosted on March 20 from 10 am — 4 pm. It will be a fun day for all ages.

A questionnaire was undertaken to the public by MOTAT, asking and finding out what made them happy at prior events. It was a way to design the experience following a large number of suggestions that flowed through.

Sarah Somerville, the MOTAT Manager of Public Programmes, says visits will not be left unhappy, and they will be happy because it is from the suggestions and their ideas which has revamped the way it will be planned and shaped out.

“Families can simply enjoy the time together or delve into the science behind endorphins and how these neurochemicals are activated to produce a natural buzz,” said Ms Sommerville.

Live music and dance performances from Hot Duff Brass Band and the SaintzUp dance group will allow families to enjoy the show.

Kids will be introduced to the Happiness Professor where they can also stimulate their senses at playdoh making workshops.

Pamper parlour, and chocolate making demonstrations will be running all day alongside a selection of top food trucks.
