We will have events running every Tuesday & Wednesday in the school holidays – Cardboard Box Club every Tuesday & a variety of craft activities every Wednesday.

Every Wednesday in the holidays, Playbarn staff will organize a different activity, starting with the Teddy Bears’ Picnic on 22 July, plate butterflies on 29 July, egg box bugs on 5 Aug, sock puppet making on 12 Aug, paper tube cars on 19 Aug & another Teddy Bears’ Picnic on 26 Aug.

Cardboard Box Club will run every Tuesday (21, 28 July, 4, 11, 18 & 25 Aug) from 10-12noon & 2-4pm. It will be free with entry to the Playbarn. Summer craft activities will run every Wednesday (22, 29 July, 5, 12, 19 & 26 Aug) 10-12noon & are also free with Playbarn entry. Teddy Bears’ Picnics cost £6.50 for children (play & picnic) & £5.50 for adult picnics.

Our focus is on wholesome, inexpensive, traditional activities, whenever possible being outdoors & using recycled materials, raising environmental awareness amongst the children & their parents. Good fun doesn’t have to cost the earth ! It’s great for children to meet new friends, have fun outdoors & learn how to recycled materials into a great new, handmade toy.

Activities are suitable for children aged 2-11. Parents must supervise children at all times. For some activities, places are limited, so booking is advisable. For more information, to book your place or buy Teddy Bears’ Picnic tickets, please visit or call 01952 730 345.

Just before term restarts, children are invited to sleepover in the Playbarn on Friday 28th – Saturday 29th August, organized by Educating Kids Outdoors (EKO).

The Pigg’s Playbarn After-School in the autumn term will be a Textiles Club, starting on Thursday 3rd September. In the October half term, the Spookley Pumpkin Festival will help keep children busy & active.
