The Little Black Book: Activity Days

  • boy bear hat paws furry

    West Oxfordshire Academy of Performing Arts

    Muddy says: An inclusive, friendly, go-the-extra-mile performing arts school for children and adults in Witney.

  • The Little Welly

    Muddy says: A sure-fire way to get 'em off the iPad, this epic obstacle course and festival is always a massive hit with kids.

  • young boy and girl in white lab coats and goggles holding lit up glass jar

    Mini Professors

    Muddy says: Toddler groups at the village hall lost their lustre? We love the sound of Mini Professors, a fun, educational pre-school science class in Didcot, Wallingford and Abingdon.

  • Oglee Poglee

    Muddy says: Truly creative kid-approved parties featuring design-your-own rockets, witches brews and paint-your-own giant polar bears. Genius glue and glitter-filled gorgeousness.

  • Bright Sparks

    Muddy says: Hoverboards, rocket launchers, dry ice, explosions: these kids' parties go off with a proper pop. Bonus points for the weird-science slime and sherbet to take home at the end.

  • Buckinghamshire Railway Centre

    Muddy says: A must for all die-hard Thomas the Tank Engine fans, this little railway centre offers the chance to take a trip on a full-size or miniature steam engine.

  • child marking a treasure map

    Treasure Trail

    Muddy says: Get them away from catching Pokemon and outdoors instead catching clues. These guided trails offer Sherlock-style capers or spy missions for families to carry out together.

  • Longridge

    Muddy says: Mother's Little Helper in the school holidays, this activity centre lays on bushcraft, watersports and orienteering for Master and Little Miss Muddy to let off steam.
