You are invited to a Family Fun Activity at Holly Lodge in Richmond Park.
The main entertainment will be an interactive performance from Magical Quests called The Greatest Showman!
You are invited to learn circus and performance skills. There will be singing and dancing and an animal mask making workshop. The party will end with a show – It will be a fun packed event with something for everyone!
This will take place in a big bell tent.
We will also have gazebos with other activities, but be prepared to be outside.
Our wonderful leaders and volunteers will also be providing:
- Drumming sessions with Edison from Otakar Kraus Music Trust
- Nature activities from Holly Lodge
- Art and craft activities and relaxing play areas
- Manicures and pedicures for parents
The activities will be tailored to suit the needs of our children and is suitable for all ages.
The nature trail is fully wheelchair accessible and there is a raised pond for looking at pond creatures and accessible logs for searching for mini-beasts under.
Parents are asked to stay with their children and enjoy a fun day out.
There will be 2 sessions:
11am – 1pm
2 – 4pm (please note change of time)
Due to Coronavirus, we are having to limit the number of people.
There are spaces for 10 families in each session.
If you book a place and then for any reason can’t come, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can offer your place to someone else.
The event will take place at the Holly Lodge Centre, which is the head office and education centre in Richmond Park. Here is their Information Pack
, showing how to get there and also the dangers to be aware of on the site.
A few notes about the day:
We will have a few volunteers to help, but you are responsible for your children. If you need guaranteed extra help, please arrange to bring another adult with you.
Please be aware that there are tractors and horses also using Holly Lodge and that there are ponds on the nature trail - please supervise your children at all times.
The session will take place whatever the weather. Please bring a raincoat and wellies for you and your children, if it looks like rain – or make sure they have suncream and a hat, as appropriate!
Holly Lodge also suggests you and your children wear long trousers or leggings, not shorts or a skirt (no bare legs) and please wear trainers or sensible shoes.
There are disabled toilet facilities, including a changing bed and hoist.
Food and drink:
We will provide drinks and snacks.
Please bring a picnic lunch for your family and a picnic rug if you want one. There are picnic benches available. Please make sure you don’t bring any products containing nuts or sesame.
Holly Lodge is about half way between Richmond Gate and Sheen Gate, if you are driving. The nearest pedestrian gate is Cambrian Gate, about half a mile’s walk.
Directions: If you go into Richmond Park through the main Richmond Gate at the top of the hill, you take the left hand road at the roundabout towards Roehampton. Holly Lodge is then about half-way to Roehampton - there is a turning marked on the left. There is parking available at Holly Lodge. The car park that we will use is through the gates and over the cattle grid. Please wait in the car park and we will be escorted to our meeting place.
