New for 2018!

We are excited to be able to have an area for children aged 4 years and under this year, which will include parachute games and other activities.

Please note that the activities on offer and event format are subject to change. All children must be accompanied by an adult throughout the day and during all activities.


Join us for a fantastic free day out by pre-registering. You must pre-register by midnight Friday 27 April 2018.

You can also attend on the day without pre-registering, which costs £1 per person payable to reception on arrival.

Trampoline and climbing

We have the capacity for 40 children per hour to be split between the two separate activities for trampoline and climbing activities, therefore we will be handing out coloured wrist bands at half past the hour for the following hour session. The day will be split into five separate time slots. Each slot will be 60 minutes starting on the hour. For example:

  • Red Band 10:00-11:00 (Collect band from registration desk at 09:30 when registration opens)
  • Green Band 11:00-12:00 (Collect band from registration desk at 10:30)
