We really hope you can join us at the Mumbler 1st Birthday Bonanza Family Fun Day at Goals Leeds on Sunday 1st July, 12pm – 4pm. We can’t believe we have been going a year now and we thought what better way to celebrate than with a fun day and showcase some of the amazing children’s activities, classes and party providers Leeds and Wharfedale have to offer.
Entry is completely FREE as are most of the activities and entertainment thanks to our co-host Goals Leeds (Goals can be hired out for any event or celebration, including kids parties*) and sponsors, Avery Walters Solicitors, Moores Estate Agents and Simon Benn Children’s Happiness Coach.
Activities on the day will be suitable for children of all ages from babies and toddlers to school age children up to approx 12 years.
There will be 4 activity zones at the fun day (please note children must be supervised by an adult at all times during the day).
1. Bouncy Castle and Soft Play Area
There will be three bouncy castles with one specifically for toddlers. On entry to the fun day, you will be able to buy a wristband for all day bouncing which will cost £3.50 per child.
We will also have a free soft play area for babies and toddlers (under 5s ) courtesy of Shuffles Entertainment.
2. Baby and Toddler Activity Taster Sessions
In the conservatory area, there will be free taster sessions from local baby and toddler class providers. These sessions are a great way to try out a new class or activity before the new term in September. No pre-booking is required for these, just turn up at the conservatory ten minutes before the session starts. (*If the maximum number is met for these sessions entrance will be on a first come, first served basis)
3. Pre School and School Age Activity Taster Sessions
Free taster sessions for older children will take place on the pro-turf pitches at the times detailed below. The majority of these sessions are drop-in and will be running throughout the afternoon but certain ones will take place at specific times so make sure you check the details below.
