Gulliver’s Land is offering a cut-price jamboree this weekend to help uniformed youth groups to enjoy a great day out.

The special celebration weekend is aimed at Scouts, Cubs and Beavers, Guides, Brownies and Rainbows, Boys’ Brigade and Girls’ Brigade groups and other uniformed youth organisations, with a significantly discounted admission price for groups of 20 or more, plus one free leader place with every 12 children.

Uniformed groups wanting to join in the Jamboree Weekend can call Gully’s Hotline on 01925 444888 to book.


Woburn Safari Park, Sat & Sun

Educational talks and demonstrations are included in the cost of admission at this event in aid of the International Elephant Foundation (IEF). And for a small donation, visitors can enjoy elephant-themed games and activities and the chance of a photograph with one of the elephants.

Pre-school toddlers and their parents can join the Parks Trust education team from 12.30pm to 2.30pm, for a drop-in Nature Play session in the wood.

No need to book – just turn up, pay on the day and have some fun. Activities will vary according to the weather and the season.
