Home Themes Programme Examples of Huts Guide for Supporters

Timbertown takes place over the August Bank Holiday weekend. The timings for each day are as follows:

Saturday (Signing in from 10am, opening at 10.30am, closing at 4pm)

Building, Painting and Decorating - Children join a group based around the theme, build a hut using timber and material provided by local companies. Children bring their own real tools (hammers, saws, etc) with all building materials (nails, timber, etc) provided by Timbertown. All paints are provided by Timbertown and are emulsion paint. Children bring paint brushes and old clothes are required as not all of the paint ends up on the huts!

Group sizes are limited for safety reasons, so choose quickly and sign-in the Group Leader when the gates open.

Sunday (10.30am to 4pm)

Funday - Games, Sports and Crafts all day (plus surprises), including bouncy castle, and a water game - some games are unique to Timbertown, so swimming costumes and a towel are required.

Monday (10.30am to 2pm)

Fancy Dress, Party, Entertainers, and watching the huts being demolished. Whilst the majority of timber will be recycled, subject to weather conditions, there will be a ceremonial bonfire to close the event.

All children are required to bring a pack lunch each day, and wear old clothes.
