When: 29th May

This is a very rare opportunity to see the inside of the family home, it is actually only open to the public two days a year! This historic home has many secrets waiting to be discovered, either on a guided tour in the morning or by making your own way around later on. Don’t forget to take a stroll around the Mottistone Gardens while you are there, it has unrivalled beauty with a huge variety of colourful flowers and plants.

Half Term Cowboy Showdown

IOW cowboynight

Where: Blackgang Chine
When: 28th May – 5th June

Make sure to visit and see some real wild west shenanigans and make sure to watch out for outlaws Rattlesnake Jake and his gang! They will be running from Sheriff Roscoe, roaming around the town and interacting with visitors and causing lots of trouble! There will be live performances every day, including shoot outs, explosions and even a bank robbery, so make sure to take cover! Join in on the Cowboy training school to improve your skills and learn how to ‘quick draw’ like a pro! With a BBQ serving real cowboy food and even a singing Deputy, you are sure to have a rootin’ tootin’ time!

Half Term Squawks Olympics

IOW robin hill2

Where: Robin Hill Country Park
When: 28th May – 5th June

Robin Hill Country Park will have all the fun rides and attractions it normally does, but over half term join the cheeky squawks, Bonita and Diaz, as they host the Squawks Olympics! With fun team games including the Squawk Splash Attack, with organised water bomb battles and water balloon challenges! Then pick a team, either Bonita or Diaz, and bounce your way through the fun Squawks Hopper Challenge, tackling the giant inflatables knockout course! And with falconry displays and a tasty BBQ there is something for everyone!

Have a fun filled half term and happy adventuring!
