Gruffalo Party Trail at Westonbirt Arboretum

The Gruffalo Party Trail at Westonbirt Arboretum from 10 February

The Gruffalo is celebrating his 25th birthday and to celebrate, everyone is invited to take part in a brand-new forest adventure. Trail starts 10 February. 

What to expect

The interactive family trail features all sorts of party-themed activities and games, along with fun facts to teach you about life in the forest for the Gruffalo and other creatures.
