Family Fun Days

We ask that all parents/carers fill out a registration form. You can download a registration form as a Word document here or as a PDF here. You will need Abobe Reader to view.

To book on an event please book online using the links in the event boxes below.

Please note that Little Hiccups can only offer refunds if you contact us to cancel before the ticket sales are closed. Once the sale closes, we purchase the tickets for the event based on the number of people that have booked. Tickets are heavily subsided and any late cancellations means that it comes out of Little Hiccups account. We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause but as you can most likely appreciate, Little Hiccups is entirely self-funding and it is not easy raising the money! However - if at any point you are unable to attend a Little Hiccups event due to lack of funds - please email events@littlehiccups.co.uk as we may be able to help out. Our aim is to make every event available for every family. Your email will remain confidential.

Children remain the responsibility of the parent/carer on all Little Hiccups trips.

All events can be booked online on Yapsody here

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Heroes Assemble at Rainbow Factory!
November 2019

Date: Sunday 15th September 2019
Time: 11am - 3pm
Where: Rainbow Factory, Unit 13C,Springfield Commercial Centre,Bagley Lane, LS28 5LY
Price: £3.50pp (Under 1's free)
Web:https://www.rainbowfactorykids.com/

Someone has been causing trouble at the rainbow factory and so the heroes need some new recruits to help them figure out what’s going wrong. Before the children can join the Superheroes, they need to complete superhero training.

After the gadget show the Joker will appear and the children will realise that it was the joker causing all the problems, however he wants to sway the children to become villains.

For the finale, the children if they want to be heroes or villains, if most of them choose heroes Batman will use the foam machine to capture batman and wrap him in a chain for photographs, if they choose heroes the same thing would happen to the Joker.

The Rainbow Factory is an interactive storybook play centre which draws on themes from well-known books and fairy tales, bringing traditional stories and modern literature to life. Immersing youngsters in a world of adventure and fun, the Rainbow Factory, based in Farsley, Leeds, is the perfect attraction for a family day out.

I'm pretty sure as well that fancy dress would be well received!

Little Hiccups are paying a visit where we will have dedicated helpers and food served for children and adults:
Children: Sandwiches (Cheese, Jam & Ham), Crisps, Mini Cakes, Party Biscuits, Cucumber, Pizza & Juice
Adults: Sandwiches (Cheese & Pickle, Chicken Salad & Tuna Mayo) Shortbread, Cucumber & Carrot Sticks with humous, Crisps, Mini Cakes & Sausage/Cheese & Onion Rolls

Skiing with Disability SnowSport
October 2019

Date: Saturday 26th October 2019
Time: 9.45am onwards - will be slots which I will organise closer to the time!
Where: Chill Factore, Trafford Quays Leisure Village, Trafford Way, Manchester M41 7JA
Price: £5 per person (Minimum Age 4)
Web: https://www.chillfactore.com

Due to the success of the last skiing event two years ago, we will be returning to Chill Factore in Manchester to have another go!

Children (and parents) will be able to have a go at skiing in the fantastic venue Chill Factore. Chill Factore is proud to be the 2010 winner of the Manchester Tourism 'Access for All' award which recognises excellence in accommodating the needs of guests with disabilities. And we could see why on our last visit. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

Disability Snowsport UK is a nationwide registered charity, based at Chill Factore and they provide adaptive skiing for individuals with any disability, including physical, sensory and learning difficulties. By using adaptive equipment and specialist instruction and support, they are able to cater for even those with very limited mobility, so we'll have you whizzing down the slope in no time!

There are 12 Sitski's available spaced throughout the day. The Sitski's are for the children with mobility issues who will be unable to stand in normal skis. They are safely strapped into a Sitski and taken down the slope by an experienced Instructor. Parent(s) will need to be waiting for them at the bottom so will be unable to ski.

Then there will be 7 groups of 10 run by 2 instructors on stand up skis. We will be running sessions throughout the day so once tickets are booked up I will organise slots. Please email me if you have a requirement for time. I will do my absolute best to accommodate all requests but obviously cannot promise that I will be able to fulfil all of them. My priority will be attempting to get families in around the Sitski's then to fulfil all other requests.

On this event, you only need to book tickets if you are skiing. Non-skiers will be able to waiting in the cafe area.

Date: Sunday 8th December 2019
Time: All day. Opening hours 9am-7pm
Where: Treswell Road, Rampton, Retford, Nottinghamshire DN22 0HX, United Kingdom.
Price: £4.00 per person. Child under 90cm: Free
Web: https://sundownadventureland.co.uk/themepark/

Ticket sales closing 24th November 2019

Christmas is no longer Christmas without traditional annual trip to Sundown to visit Father Christmas in his magic grotto. If you have never been, Sundown in a theme park designed for under 10's. It is especially fun at Christmas time when it is decorated into a magical wonderland! As the evenings draw in, the market square will come alive with hundreds of twinkling lights and decorations. The shops will be full of goodies, (forget those diets it's Christmas) stocking fillers, small toys, the full range of cherished teddies, piggin' pigs and snow babies, as well as a large selection of collectors teddy bears and fabulous collectors dolls, Christmas decorations, Santa's reindeer and lots, lots more. Plus they have live entertainment, face painters, real reindeer, Disco dancing, meet and greet with Honey and Sunny Bear & their new friends Kiki & Koko, plus the Snow Princess is in her Ice Kingdom.

This ticket will include the Santa Visit on the Magical Night Before Christmas Ride which includes a present for every child. Please note, wheelchairs cannot go through this ride but if you are unable to lift your child out into the ride, the elves take you through the magic entrance to see Santa skipping the ride so your child will not miss out!

Slots to be confirmed but we fit all the families into one or two slots together. Slots have been booked for 12:00, 12:15 & 12:30. I will let you know before the event which slot you are in (if you require a specific slot time, please email all requests to info@littlehiccups.co.uk) It is a casual event and you can come and go as you please depending on your children! We will most likely see each other at the Santa Ride. Tickets will be waiting at the Pre-Booking Stall. I will confirm this closer to the time also.

I've slightly changed the ticket selection options this year to more accurately reflect the Sundown method of ticketing (so we can pay them the correct amount!) and also to ensure correct age-range gifts are given to children.
