The Family Zone is on the outside of National Pits Straight in the Silverstone UTC and has both an indoor and outdoor area catering for the younger fans.
Academy of FUN! return to the British Grand Prix with the Builders’ Zone with loads of Lego play and special workshops, and the Creative Zone with not-too-messy making and lots of resources and ideas to inspire.
In the Builders’ Zone, here’ll be Lego car making and racing with mini-tournaments as we find our Family Zone Grand Prix champions with our dinky-but-daunting racetrack. But with so much Lego you can make whatever you please! Our brilliant Builders will be on hand to help…
New this year, we will present special Lego workshop sessions you can book in advance – they are totally free tho! Themes will include Lego Zoo with monkeys, elephants and giraffes to start us off, Lego Puzzles and Challenges (a lot of problem solving and ingenuity needed), Make a Model Village and the Fairground Attraction – where everyone helps make a working Ferris Wheel!.
Our Creative Zone includes lots of crafting resources and this year we will be making jewellery, headwaer and festival-type gear to really enjoy the celebratory sprit at the British Grand Prix/ We will also be making brilliant Pipe Cleaner Ninjas and Crowns. Most importantly, our Creatives will let our visitors take the creative lead and will help you realise your vision!
Our Active Zone is for 0-5 year olds and includes competing in superhero- training boot camp with mini assault courses. Families can also take part in the fun pentathlon and for older children there is a giant jenga, twister and human size hungry hippos.
We will be open Friday to Sunday from 8.30-6pm, ready to help your family take a breather, have fun together and to make lots of awesome things. See you there!
