Bamboozle Backyard – The Wildings

The Wildings

Outdoor immersive sessions specifically designed for families with children who are on the autistic spectrum.

On a quiet Wildlife plot on an allotment site in Leicester, is an oasis of calm and creativity waiting to be explored and brought to life by Bamboozle artists.

Being in nature has been proven to be a great healer, and over the last year, many of us have discovered the green spaces on our doorsteps and how important they have been for our wellbeing.

During the wilding experience, you and your child will be encouraged to relax and recharge alongside Bamboozle artists who will skillfully provide a safe and engaging space to explore the natural elements within the site. You may come across some of your favourite Bamboozle characters, like Arthur the gardener in Down to Earth. Each experience will be organic in the way it develops – it will be age-appropriate, child-led, and responsive to how the young person chooses to engage with the environment. Invitations of creative activities and stimuli will be made by the Bamboozle team.
