Do your children love playing and exploring outdoors? Come and join us at our socially distanced Wild Play with a different theme each week.
Woodland animals have strange senses, and so do we! Come and experience how frogs see the world and how predators silently sneak, whilst feeling and sniffing your way around the woods on a sensory adventure.
Each session can have up to 6 people present. The event is totally outside so please dress appropriately for woodland conditions.
Booking is essential using the online form on this page. Booking is complete once payment has been made.
You will be met by one of our team to collect a pack of resources, with explanations and instructions on how to use them, with lots of activities inside. You are only borrowing the equipment and should return it after 2 hours when you have finished adventuring.
Facilities and parking: There are public toilets and a carpark at the Discovery Centre. If it is full, we politely ask you NOT to park on any roadside verges on Abbey Lane, please park around the corner on Whirlowdale Road, and walk to the entrance. Allow an extra few minutes for this.
Your responsibilities: We take social distancing seriously and have to very careful about the total number of people present in the woods at once, so you need to register everyone who is attending, including any adults or toddlers.
Please follow all current government guidelines, including track and trace and social distancing from anyone not in your household or support bubble who you attend with.
