Whether you are young or young-at-heart, we have the perfect fun (& foam!) filled event with a difference. 

Get ready to re-live your childhood sports days and raise money for Portfield School’s PE department and outdoor resources. It’s time to take on giant inflatables, a large foam pit, gallons of water, character costumes... and if you make it into the final round, a giant slide and a penguin chase!

Be sure to bring the whole family because as well as the competitive obstacle course, there will be child friendly games, stalls, a licensed bar, an ice cream van and a barbecue to add to the fun carnival atmosphere.

We are welcoming entries from individuals and teams. If you enter a team, remember to specify your team name, but fear not if you would like to enter as an individual, we will build teams of other individuals so you won’t be at a disadvantage.
