Home Themes Programme Examples of Huts Guide for Supporters

Timbertown takes place over the August Bank Holiday weekend and the general programme is as follows:

Saturday (Signing in from 10.30, opening at 11am, closing at 4pm)

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

Sunday (11am to 4pm)

Finishing Building, Painting and Decorating - 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!

Monday (11am 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.

Tuesday (11am to 2pm)

Fancy Dress, Party, Entertainers, and watching the huts being pushed in to the grand finale Bonfire - Lighting of the bonfire as soon after 2pm as possible.

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