We’re going on a Bow Bear Hunt - Whatton House (August 1)

Sunday 01 August 2021

10:00 - 17:00

Whatton House, Leicestershire

We're going on a Bow Bear hunt

If you go down to Whatton House today, you're sure for a big surprise... as you may find our friendly mascot Bow Bear hiding as part of our Bow Bear Hunt!

Come and explore the wonderful 15 acre gardens at Whatton House, while searching for our friend Bow Bear, who’s hidden himself in various locations. Can you complete the trail and receive your prize at the end?

This event will be fun for all the family and a chance to be out and about, enjoying the fresh air, whilst supporting Rainbows.

There’ll be refreshments available on the day from the Whatton House team.

Due to the current Government restrictions, tickets are limited, so to avoid disappointment, we would encourage you to sign up in advance to your preferred time slot. We will update ticket availability subject to the latest Government Guidelines at the time. Should there be any remaining spaces on the day, you’ll be able to register on arrival. 

We’ll be following the latest Government Guidelines at the time. We ask that you follow government guidance, lockdown restrictions and social distancing too. Face coverings will be required in indoor spaces (toilets and when ordering food), unless you’re exempt, so please bring one with you.
