Kids Summer Fun, 22 July – 3 Sept
This summer holiday, a variety of activities are on hand to keep the children occupied, including a daily ‘Alice in Wonderland’ Garden trail.
On selected days, activities also include a unique opportunity to journey around the Garden on ‘Lennie the Landtrain’, as well as ‘Tomfoolery’ shows, face painting, comedy, magic, and a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party (see below for diary).
If they want to let off steam, the Adventure Playground features a zip wire, balance beams, swings, slides and climbing frames. There will also be outdoor games on the lawn, including Giant Jenga and Badminton, with the parkland offering plenty of space for ball games, kite flying and picnics.
