The Little Welly Returns to Henley on Thames

The Little Welly Returns to Henley on Thames

Get ready for another dollop of outdoor, muddy fun as The Little Welly – the UK’s largest obstacle course for children – returns to Henley on Thames, Oxfordshire on 8th and 9th June.

We went to Little Welly last summer and my kids had the best day ever and are so excited about returning again this year!

Especially created for kids aged four to 12, The Little Welly obstacle course has more than 30 challenges over a 3km route.  It includes climbing walls, a huge water slide, scramble nets, balancing poles, foam pit and of course, lots of mud!  This unique, interactive experience provides an exciting, energetic adventure in the great outdoors and promises to create family memories to last a lifetime.

It’s Kids vs Mud time!

The muddier the better … The Little Welly offers the perfect antidote to sedentary screen time this summer.

Designed for children to enjoy with family and friends, this unique festival lets you share the magic of the great outdoors with your kids and enjoy new activities and experiences through fitness, foam and fun!

This is the fourth year The Little Welly has landed in Henley.  Having already been enjoyed by thousands of children in Oxfordshire, Hertfordshire and Surrey over the last three years, it is fast becoming as popular as Christmas as these previous Little Welly competitors can testify:


“The Little Welly is my best day of the year, after Christmas Day!” William, 7 (Henley on Thames)

 “I wish we could do Little Welly races every weekend!”Jake, 8 (Henley on Thames)

The obstacle course is reimagined every year and is especially created to challenge kids (and their parents!) in a fun, unique and safe outdoor environment. Scale the towering heights of The Web Frame, conquer the looming Dark Crawl, splash through the Mud & Water Pits, brave the Spider Tunnel, fearlessly face the Three Hump Dragon, balance on the Long Pole Run and slide around in the Foam Pit. And as a reward for all that effort every child can collect their The Little Welly medal as they cross the finishing line – Great memories are made here!

But there’s so much more to enjoy – Set in the heart of Greenlands on the outskirts of beautiful Henley on Thames, the Little Welly Festival Village has something for all the family including The Toddler Course, Climbing Wall, Pony Rides, Bungee Trampolines and Total Wipeout Sweeper.  The Big Stage will play host to live music and entertainment throughout the day and the Activities Tent will have a full schedule of free workshops and ‘have a go’ sessions.  An array of culinary delights are also available to help satisfy even the biggest appetites including pizzas, artisan coffee, prosecco & pancakes, burgers and vegetarian alternatives, waffles and ice creams.

We can’t way to return again this year.
