What do I need to bring?
This is an outdoor event where you will be playing outdoors, exploring, getting muddy and dirty, and playing with natural elements and loose parts. Therefore, you will need to come prepared!
Warm (old) clothes, bring waterproof coat/trousers, sturdy footwear (walking or Wellington boots), a hat and gloves. For children a full change of clothes is advisable – remember there is no such thing as bad weather just bad clothing! Perhaps a bin liner to sit on in the car if very wet weather! Remember this is Britain in August so you may need all the above plus sunhat and sun cream!
