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.

All events can be booked online on Yapsody here

Little Hiccups are visiting The Deep in Hull. If you've never been it is a sensory and educational delight. It will be a relaxed event with no specific meeting time so you can arrive and leave at a time convenient to you and your family. A list of attendees will be left at reception for you to just 'Check In' when you arrive. Exact details of this will be emailed to you before the event.

The Deep, one of the most spectacular aquariums in the world, is located in Hull, East Yorkshire. This award-winning attraction is home to 3,500 fish including magnificent sharks and rays. The dramatic building, which overlooks the Humber estuary, was designed by world class architects, Sir Terry Farrell and Partners and opened in 2002 in, what was then, one of the most deprived and unfashionable cities in England.

The Deep has its own car park with space for 280 vehicles. Our pay and display car parks are £3 for 6 hours 6am-6pm  so don't forget to bring some cash!

The Deep is fully accessible. There are disabled toilets but NO CHANGING PLACE. There is a First Aid room with a bed which I will discuss access to with The Deep and confirm closer to the time. You can find out more about The Deep's accessibility including a downloadable booklet to help your children prepare for the visit. It's truly a excellent booklet and I recommend a look!

When booking a ticket, essential carers are free. Please bring ID with you if you have it.  

If you have a Day Pass (if you have been in the last year you may have a Pass that gives you free access for the year) you don't need to book on. Just turn up on the day if you want to join us!

Dean Sanderson's LogoRelaxed Family Photoshoot

Booking closes 25th Feb 2018

Due to popular demand we are returning to our annual Photo shoot with Dean Sanderson. Dean has many years experience of working with families who have a child with a special need. He is aware that a little bit more patience and time might be required to photograph a family member who needs that something a little bit extra. Little Hiccups has used Dean Sanderson for the last few years for private family photo shoots and they have always been a massive success with families coming away with their first professional photos.

We will spread this over 2 Sundays so when booking please make sure you specify which date you would like to attend.

This year, the photoshoot will take place at Dean's personal studio which is based in Garforth. Slots will be 25 minutes with a 5 minute turnaround. Dean uses a white background and he has recommend wearing bright colours and denim for a more striking effect. 

There is a small waiting area and parking will be available on the street or driveway. 

Slots will be allocated once all the tickets are booked. Please email if you have any specific time requirements and we will try our best to meet your needs.

Time: 11.30am-4.30pm
Address: Airkix Indoor Skydiving Trafford Quays Leisure Village, 9 Trafford Way, Manchester M41 7JA 
Price: £5 per person

Yup - you read that right! We have booked Indoor Skydiving for our families and we simply cannot wait! Yes, you really can fly! Airkix is where those dreams of flight become a reality. Get ready to be suspended in their column of air which totally reproduces the feeling of freefall. Super safe, super fun and super cool!

Every child and adult.would be able to give it a go. The age range is 4-104! We have hired extra instructors to go in with those that may need a little extra support but the general reality is that the majority of our children can join in on this. Its really not one to miss. You can read the full critera for flying on Airkix's website here. Our only addition would be a trachea implant due to the flow of air.

For those a little bit nervous of the idea have a look at our website for the feedback and pictures! We went in September 2016 and it was fantastic. Every person that wanted a go was able to have a go. 

We'll be booking by slots - which will have strict timing to ensure everyone gets a go - so please don't be late! Groups go in 30 minute sessions and you will be required to be there an hour earlier for your pre-flight chat and to get kitted up (so first group is 10.30am start!). Groups will be made up of 7 people per group and members of the group are rotated round every few minutes. It means that it is never too overwhelming an experience. There is a maximum of 2 wheelchairs per group so if your child is in a chair can you please select the relevant ticket.

We'll also be putting a buffet lunch available all day from the fabulous Italian eatery - FlyBar so there will be refreshments available when you attend. We recommend coming earlier than your slot to give children a chance to watch before going in.

If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to get in touch.
