The UK’s biggest children’s obstacle course is returning to Surrey Wildlife Trust’s Norbury Park (near Box Hill) for another mad and muddy weekend.

The Little Welly “Goes Wild” course will be setting up at the site of Outstanding Natural Beauty between Dorking and Leatherhead on 13 and 14 May 2017.

Billed as Tough Mudder for kids, the course features 30 child-sized challenges that are suitable for little ones aged four to 16 years. Kids who need a little help along the 3km course can be aided and encouraged by their parents or carers.the little welly

As well as popular obstacles like the mud pit, water slide, rope swing and foam pit, the Little Welly team have added 6 brand new challenges for 2017. The 3 bump dragon, spider tunnel, and the web frame are among the highlights.

But that’s not all! The impressive family festival will also be running alongside the course, with plenty of entertainment to keep kids and grown-ups busy all day.

Activities include sport challenges and family games, laser tag, toddler area, Parkour demonstrations and workshops, live music and performances from children’s entertainer Bertie Slippers, den building, camp fires, pony rides, animal encounters and a whole lot more!

A Little Welly team member commented on social media: “We are lucky to once again be working with the incredible Surrey Wildlife Trust for our Norbury Park event.

“They will be running lots of fun, interactive, nature-related activities including mini beast hunts, bush tucker challenges, fire lighting lessons and leaf bashing.

“Children can get creative in the mud kitchen and will also have the chance to get up close to animals including owls, slowworms and hedgehogs.”

Organisers are expecting between 15,000 and 20,000 people at the event
