Where could you visit?

The best FREE day out we vote for is East Park in Hull. We know it’s not in Scunthorpe but it’s worth the trip! It’s absolutely brilliant for kids and families. There are various outdoor play areas here, all modern and quite large. There’s sometimes free events here too. There’s a FREE animal centre providing a walk round petting zoo type experience with plenty of animals to see and even a walk through butterfly house. There is a boating lake with paddle swan boats and a water slide but I’m not sure if this is open. There’s plenty of spots for a picnic if you don’t fancy the cafe.

If you don’t want to go to the furthest side of Hull then West Park is a lot closer to the Hessle end, it’s got play areas and a few animals but not as many and it’s not as big.


In Scunthorpe and North Lincolnshire: (*Fees Apply)

*Messingham Zoo

20:21 Visual Art Centre

North Lincolnshire Museum

*Normanby Hall Country Park

*Go Ape

*Arial Trail / Pink Pig Farm

*Uncle Henry’s / The Maze

Central Park / Splash Pad *fees may apply to go on bouncy castles etc

Party In The Pines organisers are expecting this festival to be their biggest yet with a sell out once the Platinum selling headline is announced for the main stage on the evening of Thursday 12th Feb.

Already ticket sales for the August live music festival “Party In The Pines” have been sailing in through the newly launched website www.partyinthepines.co.uk without even a full line up or headline announced.

The August festival will see over 30 acts across 4 different platforms, which will include the Main stage, Fortress stage, Acoustic tent and a dance tent. There is bound to be something for everyone to enjoy and for early bird tickets at only £15, it’s not to be missed!!

Over 50% Of the early bird tickets have now been sold for the August festival. Once early bird is sold out the regular ticket price will be £25.

The Party In The Pines atmosphere is like no other live music event in the area. Surrounded by trees in a private woodland clearing with stages set into the beautiful surroundings. Whether you just want to sit and soak up the sun with a cold beer and some friends whilst taking in some live music or if you want to party hard when the sun goes down. Party In The Pines is the place to be this summer locally.

Camping & Parking is FREE (no hidden costs) just buy your ticket and that’s that. You can bring your own alcohol (No Glass) or purchase from the on site licensed bar.

Please ensure when booking via the Party In The Pines Website you book the festival you want. There are two different events.
