The Big Campfire at Morden Hall Park

Big camp at night with a family camp fire.

Stay out late for the best bits about camping without the camping. On Saturday 22 July between 6pm and 10pm, we’ll toast marshmallows, go on a bat walk, play campfire games and try stargazing.

The Big Campfire is an adventure for children over 8 to bring their families on. If you have never listened to bats chat or tried to identify the constellations, this is your chance to enjoy night-time fun and try some new things. Then you can head home for a good night’s sleep in your own beds.

Bring your blankets and get cosy as we supply the marshmallows for you to toast and other campfire snacks and drinks. Sing along to our old campfire favourites or teach us yours. We have a few silly games up our sleeves so prepare to be entertained.

It costs £10 per person to join the Big Campfire and you can book your places by calling 0344 249 1895.

What to bring

It gets chilly in the park at night so dress up warm with plenty of layers. We recommend you wear long sleeves and long trousers to deter those pesky biting insects.

We’ll be out under the stars and although we’re wishing for a clear night you’ll need to bring a raincoat or umbrella just in case the weather has other ideas.

There’ll be toilets on hand. Bring a torch to help you use them and then to navigate your way home at the end of the evening.

Getting here

We do have a car park, but why not see if you can use alternative forms of transport to get here?
