Boggle Wish Bonfire

Make a wish at BeWILDerwood this Februrary half term!

Details

Come to the fire side with a pinecone you have found in the park, write a wish for someone you love, and send it into the flames through our wonderful whirly-gig! The Twiggles will listen to your wishes* from their treehouses as the smoke swirls by... and might just make it come true!

Don't worry about the brisk February air! You’ll soon warm up scrambling through the Sky Maze and racing across the Broken Bridge, giggling those winter cobwebs away. You can even hop, skip and jump over to the Munch Bar for oodles of yummy hot treats... (Swampy loves scrummy hot chocolates the best!)

Every day of half term, BeWILDerwood has a range of inclooosive activities! Make your very own Wish Whirler in the Big Hat and visit the Face Painting Pavilion to get twiggled up ready for storytelling. Meet the characters of BeWILDerwood on the storytelling stage, and bring your Wish Whirler to learn how you can help Hazel the Wood Witch cast her soopa spells in our interactive shows!

The best way to explore the woods is trying to find our Twiggletastic trail! The inhabitants of BeWILDerwood have made one big wish to share with all their friends! Can you find the characters hiding with their pinecones around the park? Use the letter on their pinecones to discover BeWILDerwood's big wish and you will win a soopa prize!

And... be some of the first WILD explorers to try out the brand-new Towering Treetop Tangles! Can you scramble through the tangles and explore he canopy? This is one for the bravest of Boggles!

Hip-hip hooray BeWILDerwood is open for 2019!

*Don’t forget - you must make a big wish for someone else, it won't come true if it's for yourself!
