Rotherham attractions come together to showcase the best of the town
A group of Rotherham based attractions are set to showcase the very best that the town has on offer for schools, groups and children across the region to benefit from.
The special event, due to take place on September 23 at Gulliver’s Valley, will see representatives from the family run theme park join forces with other local educational visit providers and leisure facilities from across South Yorkshire to showcase what learning outcomes can be achieved with their programmes and activities at their venues.
As part of the event Gulliver’s Valley will launch its brand-new education and residential programmes to headteachers and children’s group leaders.
In addition, guests will be able to explore the South Yorkshire theme park and find out about ways that their school, group or organisation can work with Gulliver’s Valley and its partners.
Adam Bliss, from Gulliver’s Valley, said: “We are looking forward to opening our doors to education and group leaders this September to showcase what Gulliver’s Valley and the other attractions can offer to their school or organisation such as overnight stays, day visits, reward trips or education-led sessions.
“We have always been much more than a theme park and unfortunately the pandemic has meant we haven’t been able to progress as quickly as we would have like with some of our exciting plans but we are now if the position where we can move forward and our educational visits are the next step for us. Along with the other education providers in the town, we are all keen to talk to schools and groups about how we can work together for the benefit of the children across South Yorkshire.
“This will be a one stop shop and a great opportunity to see what some of the best providers in the region can offer to young people. The event is free and we hope as many schools and group leaders will attend.”
Alongside Gulliver’s Valley’s Educational Programmes, the resort will also be offering a Bushcraft Programme giving young people get a taste of what it is like surviving in the outdoors, along with programmes developed especially for badge, community and sports groups.
Adam added: “We offer day visits and residential and overnight stays suited to every budget from an indoor camping experience, perfect for Brownies, Scouts and school groups to en-suite accommodation for either a one, two or four night stay.”
The event, which is due to take place on Thursday 23 September 2021 is FREE for education leaders, groups including Brownies and Scouts and Sports Group leaders, if you would like more information please contact Adam Bliss on 07974 974 346 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
