What’s happening?

Magic and Mayhem is our biggest national event for girls aged between five and ten years old, and aims to give them all the fun of a festival in a safe and inclusive environment.  

As soon as they arrive, girls will get to explore different zones - set around a real-life Big Top - each with its own themed activities. These may include:

  • Circus – see professionals demonstrate some mind-boggling circus skills, before getting to try them out. 
  • Magical science– get messy making juggling balls and ribbon sticks, and learning magic tricks!
  • Fun– what it says on the tin - huge inflatables and lots more games!
  • Dance –  Join us for a fabulous dance workshop before putting on an epic dance show at our closing event.
  • Physical – including tunnelling, low ropes and bungee trampolining.

Outside of the zones, there will be lots of other activities to get stuck into - including a sleuthing treasure hunt! On Saturday night in the Big Top, everyone will put on their dancing shoes for a disco, before girls who are staying over bed down for some late night story-telling.

You don’t need a Going Away With Licence to bring your girls to Magic and Mayhem – the event is open to all.
