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 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

Time: All Day (Open 10.30am - 5.00pm)
Address: Cannon Hall Farm, Cawthorne, Barnsley, South Yorkshire, S75 4AT
Price: £3.50 per person (Under Twos FREE)

Back due to popular demand we will be re-visiting Cannon Hall Farm. If you've not been here before, you should really join us - it really is a fun day out.

As well as being a farm there is also: sheep racing, indoor play area, ferret racing, milking demonstrations, outdoor play area and tractor & trailer ride. (Some extra charges may apply)

I've arranged access to the Activity Room for lunch as the cafe can get busy. They will be posting a sign on the door but cannot guarantee that other members of the public will not use the same location. 

This is an event where I provide a list of attendees that have booked on to Cannon Hall Farm. You can arrive/leave at a time best for your family and will simply need to 'Check In' on arrival at the entrance. 


  • Toilets: There are Disabled Access Toilets but no Changing Place and unfortunately nowhere to use our Mobile Changing Unit on this occasion.
  • Parking: There is a Car Parking fee of £3 (not applicable to Blue Badge Holders)


About the Farm:

Cannon Hall Farm opened to the public for the first time in 1989. Since that time we have added adventure playgrounds, gift shop, farm shop, two restaurants and an indoor playground. It is now one of the largest farm attractions in the UK and the winner of many awards.

Our new £1.5 million farmyard opened in July 2013. Seven new farm buildings designed with the visitor in mind. See the day to day workings of a modern farmyard including tractors and farm machinery during the working day.

Other attractions include a milking parlor with regular milking demonstrations and a Rare Breeds barn. This is the first visitor centre of it's type in the world!

Cannon Hall Farm was winner of the Best Tourism Experience at The White Rose Awards 2011 and highly commended in the Visit England Awards 2012 in the same category. It was also a finalist in The Best Large Attraction Award at The White Rose Awards 2014 and won the The Innovation award for it's new farmyard at the National Farms For Schools Awards 2015.

Little Hiccups 10th Birthday Celebration - Join the Circus! 
July 2019

Date: Sunday 7th July 2018
Time : 11am-1pm
Address: Royal Armouries, Armouries Drive, Leeds, LS10 1LT
Prices: £3.50 (Under 2's Free)

Booking closes: 23rd June 2019 to allow to plan for catering.

We can't believe it ourselves but this year we are the BIG 10! Little Hiccups has been going for a decade now and we've grown from strength to strength and the number of families that we help support has grown right alongside us! This year we wanted to celebrate BIG to celebrate our big birthday and we delight in inviting families old and new join us for a birthday bash to be remembered.

We wanted this to be a birthday to remember (don't be expecting this next year!!) and have decided that running away with the circus is the only way to do that this year. Well...not really...but we have invited Berzerkaz Circus to come join us and help entertain you all. There will be a variety of circus acts and walkarounds including stilt walking, juggling, comedy shows and hoola hooping amongst others.  To continue the circus theme we have popcorn and candy floss machines available (sorry in advance) and fairground games Hook-a-Duck, Tin Cans and a Coconut Shy. 

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 obviously circus  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. 


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 is disabled parking available in the multistory

There are Disabled Toilets and Baby Changing facilities. There are no Changing Place and unfortunately no good places for us to use the Mobile Changing Unit.

Climb Mount Everest at Clip n' Climb - Fundraising Event
July 2019

Date: Monday 29th July 2019
Time: 10am onwards
Address: Clip n Climb Leeds, Unit 3, Tristram Centre, Brown Ln W, Leeds LS12 6BF

Ever wanted to climb Mount Everest?  Now you can from the safety (and warmth!) of Clip n Climb, Leeds.

Mount Everest is 8848m high and on July 29th 2019 we're going to conquer it. There are 30 walls to split between all the climbers and one wall will be reserved for SEND climbers with the SEND harness. That means on average each wall will need to be climbed 40 times. The idea is to count individual climbs and add them together until we reach 8848m. So we'll be climbing as a team. 

This event is open to everyone who wants to help us raise funds. Corporate teams, Hiccups families, friends and families and children are all invited. All you need to do is raise a minimum of 50 pounds per family although we'll happily accept more! Why not get people to sponsor you per climb or for the whole event? 

Clip n Climb are kindly giving us the venue for FREE to help with our fundraising efforts. We only ask that you do not bring your own food on the day but there is a cafe (And I can honestly vouch for the food there  - its gorgeous!) to help support them supporting us. 

So - if you are interested, sign up. (It's free) so that we have an idea of numbers. If this event is very popular we may split the day into slots to prevent the venue from getting too crowded (We can have 140 maximum including supporters). Please share with colleagues and friends who you think would also be interested. You can sign up to raise funds online on our Fundraising Page on EveryClick here.

The event is on July 29th 2019. Training will start at 9.30am and run every 30 minutes. The fundraising challenge will start at 10am and run till we're done! 

More details will be sent shortly.

Mobile Changing UnitMobile Changing Unit

Thanks to a Cash 4 Kids grant, Little Hiccups has a Mobile Changing Unit that we are able to bring with us to certain events. This means that for children that are unable to use a Disabled Toilets and require a Changing Place we are able to provide a safe place to change your child. It does require a private room of a certain size however so it may not be available for every event. Please email if you wish to enquire if it will be available.

Criteria for Use

  • Families must have a child with disabilities/additional needs that would benefit from the Mobile Changing Unit.
  • Families must be registered Little Hiccups families and at the time of use must be at a Little Hiccups event. You can download a Little Hiccups Registration Form here.


The below documents will be available with the Mobile Changing Unit. These are for reference only.
