Littledown Family Fun Day 2018
We have another fun filled day planned for 2018. Full of activities and laughter - there really is something for everyone.
It is unique and a fantastic opportunity for an event that is both inside and outside set within 47 acres of parkland.
Watch local talent showcasing gymnastics, taekwondo, singing, dancing, cheerleading and acting. Prepare to be wowed by the martial arts displays, meet Crazy Creatures’ creepy crawlies, go orienteering and get your face painted and your hair wrapped. Watch in amazement the falconry display, magic shows and stilt walking. Come and try the aerial hoop, slack line and tumble run at the mini big top, sign the kids up to youth theatre workshops or send them into the Inflatable Zone to bounce off that endless energy!
Come and meet Poppy from Trolls, some of the PJ Mask characters and Skye, Marshall, Chase and Rubble from Paw Patrol. Plus Dino the Dinosaur. Minky Moos will be attending with Moana, Batman, Princess Leia and Kylo Ren. There is also a Fun Fair, and ALTITUDE will be running sessions on the high and low rope course, plus family wrestling shows to watch. With lots of stalls selling arts & crafts and artisan products.
There’s so much going on that you could easily stay for the whole event – from 11am to 4pm. There’s even an adult/teen bouncy castle if the kids won’t take turns! Don’t miss the 360 degree Science Dome featuring Volcanoes. There is also Nerf wars and Zorb football on the astro pitches, plus have a go at the giant inflatable football dartboard.
If all that sounds a little too energetic there are always plenty of opportunities to grab refreshments and snacks. The play parks and paddling pool are open as usual if you need a change of pace! There is live music on the Terrace, two licensed bars, BBQ, wood fired pizzas, Thai, Fish & Chips, Mexican, plus street food,

The end of one school year means preparing for the next! New uniform, new shoes, new water bottle...the list can feel endless! Our Back to School Must Have List will help you get organised.
