Let your kids Go Wild, Get Muddy and have a ‘Best Day Ever!’

Really excited about this! Get ready for a whole dollop of outdoor, muddy fun as The Little Welly – the UK’s largest obstacle course for children – arrives at Arley Hall and Gardens, Northwich, Cheshire on 29th and 30th June.

Especially created for kids aged four to 12, The Little Welly obstacle course has more than 30 challenges over a 3km route.  It includes climbing walls, a huge water slide, scramble nets, balancing poles, foam pit and of course, lots of mud!  This unique, interactive experience provides an exciting, energetic adventure in the great outdoors and promises to create family memories to last a lifetime.

It’s Kids vs Mud time!

The muddier the better … The Little Welly offers the perfect antidote to sedentary screen time this summer.

Designed for children to enjoy with family and friends, this unique festival lets you share the magic of the great outdoors with your kids and enjoy new activities and experiences through fitness, foam and fun!

This is the first year The Little Welly has landed in Cheshire.  Having already been enjoyed by thousands of children in Oxfordshire, Hertfordshire and Surrey over the last three years, it is fast becoming as popular as Christmas as these previous Little Welly competitors can testify:  

“The Little Welly is my best day of the year, after Christmas Day!” – William, 7 (Henley on Thames)

 “I wish we could do Little Welly races every weekend!” – Jake, 8 (Henley on Thames)

The obstacle course is reimagined every year and is especially created to challenge kids (and their parents!) in a fun, unique and safe outdoor environment. Scale the towering heights of The Web Frame, conquer the looming Dark Crawl, splash through the Mud & Water Pits, brave the Spider Tunnel, fearlessly face the Three Hump Dragon, balance on the Long Pole Run and slide around in the Foam Pit. And as a reward for all that effort every child can collect their The Little Welly medal as they cross the finishing line – Great memories are made here!

But there’s so much more to enjoy – Set in the heart of the stunning grounds of Arley Hall and Gardens the Little Welly Festival Village has something for all the family including The Toddler Course, Laser Tag, Climbing Wall, Pony Rides, Bungee Trampolines and Total Wipeout Sweeper.  The Big Stage will play host to live music and entertainment throughout the day and the Activities Tent will have a full schedule of free workshops and ‘have a go’ sessions.  An array of culinary delights are also available to help satisfy even the biggest appetites including pizzas, artisan coffee, prosecco & pancakes, burgers and vegetarian alternatives, waffles and ice creams.  

A day at The Little Welly is jam-packed full of fun, adventure and future memories – but don’t just take our word for it:

“The Little Welly is such a great day out for all the family – my boys loved it; fun, fitness, foam and lots and lots of mud!” – Roger Black, Olympic Medalist 

 “My mummy ran all the way round the course with me and helped me when I got stuck under the net. I wasn’t scared at all.  I was so happy. She laughed lots too. I want to do it again next year.” – Isabelle, 5

“Normally, my mum gets cross with me when I get that muddy!  It was so much fun and I loved doing the race with my friends too.  Better than sports day by far!” – Amelie, 7

 “I didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as I did.  Usually with kids based activities, parents hang around watching their children enjoy themselves. It’s a pretty passive affair. The Little Welly was all about enjoying the experience together and it was lovely to share something with Freya and be ‘in the moment’ with her.  I think her favourite bit was watching me get soaked and covered in foam at the end!”  – Neil Canning, dad of Freya, 5
