Little Friends 2020 @ Roundhay Park

DUE TO THE LATEST GUIDANCE FROM THE GOVERNMENT ON COVID-19 WE ARE CANCELLING UPCOMING EVENTS. ALL CLASSES TO END OF JUNE HAVE BEEN CANCELLED AND REFUNDED.

We love Roundhay Park and we want to inspire the next generation to love it and protect it and it was out of this desire that Little Friends of Roundhay Park was born.

We are a small voluntary group within "Friends of Roundhay Park" charity, dedicated to creating engaging and fun activities for children and teenagers in Roundhay Park.

Children and their families can volunteer on our family-friendly working parties and litter-picks, or book onto our forest craft workshops and forest school classes which are all held in Roundhay Park throughout the year. In July we are adding 'Wild Passport' which is a course designed for older children and young people (8+) to learn forest craft skills and tools.

Priority given to FoRP Family members - the best way to ensure you're able to book the classes you'd like is to join FoRP as a family member for £20 annual fee. It's simple to join https://forp.org/join/. The membership benefits include 20% discount on single class bookings, early bird priority for bookings and exclusive access to some events.

And new for this year is the introduction of Class Passes which give 30% discount on 3 Forest school or Craft workshops per child - only available to members.

Remaining tickets available to public to buy 3 weeks before event. A waiting list is available, so please add your details if you’d like to be contacted in event of a cancellation. Ticket sales shut at 10pm the night before a class so the team have a final number of children assist to plan for.

ALL CHILDREN MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY A SUPERVISING ADULT — max of 3 children per adult on a booking (with the exception of Wild Passport).
