Sill Scramble

Event date:
11th July 2021
The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre

A fun obstacle course with a difference at The Sill.

Challenge your friends and family by taking on our pop up obstacle course this summer. We have partnered with Challenge Northumberland to design a different course each month which will tackle the obstacles through the eyes of an insect or animal that face these challenges every day.

This July our course will show how bees fly, communicate and collect pollen. Don’t worry – no dressing up needed (unless you want to!).

Free Parking for all ticket holders.
