We're going on a Bow Bear Hunt - Belvoir Castle

Sunday 01 August 2021

11:00 - 16:00

Belvoir Castle, Leicestershire

We're going on a Bow Bear hunt

If you go down to Belvoir Castle 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 Rose Garden at Belvoir Castle 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.

You must register in advance to take part in the event. Your ticket will include access to the gardens at Belvoir Castle and you’ll be able to get 20% off entry into the castle if you’d like to visit. Castle discount tickets can be purchased at the ticket office upon entry on the day. 

Tickets are limited, so to avoid disappointment, you must sign up in advance to your preferred time slot.  Should there be any remaining spaces on the day, you’ll be able to take part, but you’ll need to pay the castle / gardens entry fee in addition to the trail charge. 

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.

Please note that additional parking charges do apply when visiting Belvoir Castle.
