York Mumbler Children’s Activity Day 2019

May 28, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm


FREE Tickets are now available for this event!

You are very welcome to join us at the York Mumbler Children’s Activity Day at the Mount School in York in May Half Term.

Entry is completely free as are the activities. Thanks to our host sponsors The Mount School, our sponsors Water Babies and all of the local companies taking part for making this possible!

We will be asking for a voluntary donation of £1 per person on the door to go to our chosen charity, Martin House Childrens Hospice, but if you can’t afford this then please don’t worry – you’ll still be allowed to come and enjoy the day.

I just ask that you only get tickets that you’re going to use – this will ensure that everyone who wants to come can come and enjoy the day. You can register for them HERE

Water Babies are helping make this event possible again by sponsoring it and you can book in a free taster session with them at one of their regular venues for another time by e-mailing littlefish@waterbabies.co.uk.

The Mount School are hosting the event and will be giving tours of the fabulous grounds through the day too.

Activities on the day will be suitable for babies and toddlers as well as primary school ages but everyone is welcome. York Mumbler and the activity providers want you all to have a fantastic day as well to see what brilliant classes, clubs and activities and party providers are on offer in this great city.

The Schedule of events is below, no need to pre-book into these (as long as you have your tickets already) so just turn up 5 – 10 minutes before the scheduled start time to enjoy the activities.

Martin House provides family-led care for over 400 babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions in York and across North, West and East Yorkshire.  The hospice in Boston Spa is a place where children, young people and their families can come to stay along their journey and find support, rest and practical help.  Our community nurses offer practical and emotional support to families in their own homes and hospitals and, for families whose child has sadly passed away, we offer specialist bereavement support through counselling and group sessions.  

 Thank you for your support today – you are making a real and tangible difference to many families in York and across the region.
