The Gruffalo Trail

Join the hunt for a V.I.G and support Hospiscare - THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT

This event is now sold out. Thank you to all those who purchased tickets!

Head off the beaten track, creep through the Glen and take part in Honiton’s very first Gruffalo trail! Find the Fox , Owl and Snake….then …see if you can spot a very special… V.I.G!

The Lower Glen was gifted to the people of Honiton in 1935 to celebrate the Silver Jubilee of George V – and this 6 acre public woodland is a bit of a hidden gem!  There’s a winding stream, a waterfall, shrubs and trees galore – and our amazing supporter, Nathan, has kindly organised a Gruffalo Trail, which will be fun for all the family.

If you like adventure, cookies and ice-cream, this event is not to be missed. Put on your mouse mask, take part in the Gruffalo Trail and support your local hospice, Hospiscare! There will also be a raffle, with some fantastic prizes, as well as extra cookies and ice cream for sale – so please do remember to bring some cash. 

Please note: Children under 16 will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. 

Location: Enter the trail at Pine Park Road entrance to the The Glen, Honiton EX14 2HZ

Time: The trail will start promptly at 10am and be finished by 12pm

Accessibility: Unfortunately the Gruffalo trail is unsuitable for wheelchair users and pushchairs, due to steep steps.
