1st Backwell Scouts 34th Annual Donkey Derby


The Donkey Derby is an afternoon of fun for all the family.

Children can ride the donkeys, race the donkeys, they can bounce on bouncy castles, have their faces painted, play at a coconut shy and smash crockery at the crockery smash!

We also have inflatable sumo wrestling suits and a huge 35ft inflatable assault course to ensure they've run off their energy at the end of the day. To keep them going just a little longer we have a BBQ with lovely, locally-sourced food and a full tea tent with ice cream and cold drinks as well as traditional tray bakes and cakes.

Admission is £1 per adult and free for children under 18!

No unaccompanied children under 12 please and we regret no dogs (apart from guide dogs) as the event is being held on a school playing field.
