Free event Family friendly


Sat 13 Aug 2022 - Sun 14 Aug 2022


10:00 - 16:00

Head over to Minsthorpe Recreation Ground (next to Minsthorpe Leisure Centre) for A Grand Day Out South Elmsall on Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 August for a full weekend of free summer activities brought to you by Wakefield Council.

Enjoy a giant sand pit where kids can play and get your cameras out as giant inflatable tentacles take over the grounds! Those looking for something a little different can also enjoy Colony, a unique and tactile audio-visual installation involving large, interactive, audible spheres that allow sound to be seen, heard and felt!

And it’s not just inflatable tentacles, Designs In Air will be bringing their otherworldly inflatables, providing some brilliant photo opportunities for the whole family.

Both days will also see a selection of live music from local and regional brass bands, a selection of delicious street food and FREE family workshops. Make your very own monster mask or try your hand at a whole host of traditional sports day activities – better start practicing at the egg and spoon race!

Bring a blanket and settle in for a fun summer weekend of free entertainment!
