A Spectacular Superhero Trail
Last weekend we played host to an event of epic proportions with over 470 children and parents taking part in a spectacular Superhero Trail. Saturday 22nd April saw families enter the enchanting Walled Garden. Dressed up and ready for a challenge, the mini marvels set off on an awesome adventure, seeking out superheroes hidden amongst the flowers, followed by arts and crafts, games, dancing, a fancy dress competition and superhero activities, featuring your favourite real-life superheroes – the day was certainly a heroic success.
The half-sized heroes then set upon their next mission – perfecting their battle skills with children’s indoor archery, donning a devilish disguise with fabulous face painting, designing and decorating masks and trying their superhero luck at the tombola.
Superhero favourites Batman, Robin, Superman, Spiderman and Wonderwoman also took time out of their busy crime fighting schedule to join in the fun- playing games, singing and posing for photographs with their miniature counterparts.
Spectacular prizes were awarded for the best children’s costume, with a miniature Superman taking home exclusive tickets to our outdoor theatre performance of ‘The Emperors New Clothes’ on Tuesday 30th May (because even Superheroes need some rest and relaxation).
The Warwick Family, Kirsty, Josh and their two sons Bobby and Dexter, scooped two prizes with their brilliant Batman and Robin costumes (complete with a fantastic, villainous Joker), also winning outdoor theatre tickets plus a luxury overnight stay in one of our charming hot tub cottages.
“Me and my family really enjoyed the superhero trail at Wynyard Hall. The staff were all really helpful, friendly and great at entertaining the children. The whole session was really organised, it was nice not to have to wait around, with always something going on! Our son was really excited for the day and to get dressed up, which made us decide to dress up as a whole family. We all had a brilliant day, topped off with winning two prizes, our son as one of the best dressed (which he was very happy about) and also best dressed family. Thank you to Wynyard Hall for our prizes and making our son a very happy little superhero,” says Kirsty Warwick.
An unmissable event of fantasy and fun, the heroic mini marvels laughed, played and triumphed over weekend boredom – just in time, before they go back to school.
