Little Welly Goes Wild
15th and 16th July 2017

The Little Welly Goes Wild is coming to The Hertfordshire Showground, St Albans on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th July!

Join us for a fun-filled, active day out for the family.

The Little Welly is all about getting children outdoors, active and having fun. At the heart of this two day event is the muddy fun of the awesome 3km obstacle course. 4-12 year olds can take on the challenge of the 30 obstacles which include the foam pit, hay bale climbs, rope swings, climbing walls, mud pit, ball cage, net crawl and the big slide.

The Little Welly Goes Wild is, however, much more than just an obstacle course, and there’s loads going on for the whole family to enjoy. Activities include pony rides, ball sports, football darts, zorbing, den building and the ever-popular laser tag. Bertie Slippers will be appearing on the main stage throughout the weekend, keeping children entertained, and there's fantastic live music on Saturday and Sunday.

There'll be lots of food options available on site, from pulled pork to waffle on a stick.

You’ll need to book ahead and choose the obstacle course time slot you would like.
