An Experience to be Remembered!

It is essential to Thornton Hall Country Park that as many families as possible (particularly those with additional needs) are able to enjoy and fully experience the magic of the interactive Christmas events on offer.
“Just Be You” sessions are back for 2019 – smaller groups and lengthier time slots, making it easier for anyone needing to take their time to adapt to their surroundings, and for those that may not be at ease with noise and/or larger groups.  So relax and enjoy an easier, comfortable, stress-free event.
‘Just Be You’ adventure dates 7th, 8th, 14th, 15th December

“Visited with my special needs class.  We couldn’t fault your organisation, resources and staff.  The children will remember their trip for a long time.”
