Family Fun Days

We ask that all parents/carers fill out a registration form. You can download a registration form 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!

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

May 2018

Date: Sunday 20th May 2018
Opening Time: 10am - 5pm
Address: Ponderosa Rural Therapeutic Centre, Ponderosa Park, Off Smithies Lane, Heckmondwike WF16 0PN.
Price: £3 per person. Under 2's Free.

Booking closes Sunday 13th May 2018

We last visited Ponderosa YEARS ago when we first started our Family Fun Days. It'll be nice to visit it again.

The Ponderosa Rural Therapeutic Centre was established by a group of people who wanted to help bridge the gap between disabled and able bodied people.

Ponderosa has a wide range of different animals from all over the world, ranging from the Tropical Jungles of Brazil to the Sandy Plains of Australia. There are also zip wires, play areas, a reptile room, a bunny barn and lots more to visit!

Little Hiccups have hired out the Lakeside Restaurant for the day for the Little Hiccups families so that you can take a picnic and eat in comfort and relax a little bit more! The Restaurant can hold 50 people at a time.

Little Hiccups has organised entry only. There are some extra costs on the day should you wish to partake such as entry into the Soft Play, the Pony Rides, etc. Please have a look at the website for the costs.


Ponderosa is fully wheelchair accessible so everyone can come and enjoy what we have to offer and have a fantastic day out.

*In winter our paths can get quite wet so wellies are recommended! 

Construction of a visitor centre began in January 1997. This now provides facilities such as toilets for the disabled and a refreshment area. There is NO Changing Place. I will check the availability of a First Aid Room and if we are able to use if required.

Kidzone LogoSoft Play at Kid Zone Play Centre
June 2018

Date: Sunday 10th June 2018
Opening Time: 4pm-6pm
Address: No.1 Chestnut Court, Lotherton Way, Garforth, Leeds, LS25 2JY
Child 0-1 or no Soft Play/Food: Free
Child 1-16: £3.50 (Soft Play and Food included)
Adult: £1 (Food included)

Booking closes Sunday 3rd June 2018. Maximum of 120 children.

Its been a while since we visited a Soft Play and we thought that this one would be a fun one for the younger children especially although all are always welcome.

Little Hiccups have exclusively hired out Kid Zone Play Centre in Garforth for our families to come and play. The Soft Play has a Baby area, a toddler zone and lots for the older children too such as Go-Karts Zone and Sports Stars Zone. 

Kid Zone has recently been taken over by new owners and they are in the process of kitting out a new sensory room. They are hoping that this will be up and running for our visit. Fingers crossed! 

As its over dinner time we've arranged food. The children will be provided with the selection of sandwiches, buns, crisps and ice-cream and unlimited juice (minus the party bags unfortunately as we didn't feel these would be suitable for many of our children). Adults will also be fed and there will be paninis, pizza, garlic bread, salad and chips on offer along with large sharing pizzas, garlic bread etc.


There is small step up into the entrance but once in it is all on one level. 

There are Disabled Toilets and Baby Changing facilities. There are no Changing Place - however, there are 2 private Party Rooms which we will be able to use should anyone need to change a child or need a quiet room. 

There is limited parking in the attached carpark and surrounding streets. However, there is a Tesco and an Aldi within walking distance that you will be able to park at for a short while.

Kidzone LogoLittle Hiccups 9th Birthday Celebrations!
Creepy Crawlie Party at Royal Armouries
July 2018

Date: Sunday 1st July 2018
Opening Time: 11am-1pm
Address: Royal Armouries, Armouries Drive, Leeds, LS10 1LT
Prices: £3.50 (Under 2's Free)

Booking closes: 17th June 2018 to allow to plan for catering.

It's our 9th Birthday this year and we want you to help us celebrate! We like a good party so we've got lots of fun and games planned this year!

We have Meet a Creature paying us a visit. As there will be a lot of children attending we have asked them to provide a 'Stand' where children can go and pay the animals a visit. There will be relaxed holdings and maybe a presentation or two depending on how the children are that day. He's ready to be flexible! The animals will be in the same room but sectioned off to give them a little bit of privacy from the noise also. So don't worry if you are squemish - you don't have to go over!

We've also invited back our regular Susie Sparkles to entertain the children as she just does it SO well! Susie has been our regular entertainment at our parties for the last few years and she knows our kids well. I'm looking forward to seeing her outfit for the Creepy Crawlie theme!

As if that wasn't enough, Face Painting by Claire will also be available for children (and adults!) to get their face painted. Claire was at our Christmas Party last year and we loved her so much we've asked her back. The theme is Creepy Crawlies but she does a variety of faces to suit all requests!

As always there will be food and a birthday cake for everyone to enjoy. There will be vegetarian and glutan free options available. We just ask that you make sure that if you visit the animals that you clean your hands first!


The party is on the ground level.

Parking is available in a multistory carpark or on the surrounding streets a short walking distance away.

There are Disabled Toilets and Baby Changing facilities. There are no Changing Place.

Benefits of Hydrotherapy

  • Pain Relief – the support of the water and warmth can help reduce muscle spasms.
  • Increased Mobility – movement can be facilitated more freely in water to increase joint range and stretch muscles.
  • Strengthening –the water can be used as resistance to movement to help strengthen specific muscle groups or whole body challenging work.
  • Improved Balance - balance can be challenged by using water.

All sessions will be run by two qualified physiotherapists and supported by two support coaches.

Hydrotherapy pool 10x8 with step access and H frame hoist-tracking. There is a pool hoist and large, fully accessible changing facilities.
