The Little Welly
Muddy says: A sure-fire way to get them off the iPad, this epic obstacle course and festival in Henley is always a massive hit with kids.
This one’s all about getting muddy, so naturally us Muddy crew are very much on board. The Little Welly organise summer children’s obstacle courses and festivals in various locations. For our ‘hood it’s Henley on Sat 8 and Sun 9 June and, new for 2019, the team will also be landing in Cheshire and Kent.
The course is a 3km hop, skip, jump and dash through 30 challenges, taking in streams, trails, mud and woodland. Oh, and did I mention it’s the biggest obstacle course for kids in the UK? If that doesn’t tire out the little blighters, what will?
Then there’s the accompanying festival with – deep breath – kart racing, rope climbing, circus skills workshops, live music, helter skelter, laser tag, climbing wall, pony rides and loads of family activities. I think it’s such a fantastic idea – get them away from screens, into the fresh air and doing some exercise. And I quite fancy a pony ride myself.
